Liz was the Programme Manager for the CareerTech Challenge Fund.
The CareerTech Challenge was a partnership between Nesta and the Department for Education that supported the development of innovative services that help people navigate the changing labour market and learn the skills they need for the future of work.
During the programme, the CareerTech Challenge Fund supported over 10,000 learners globally to learn new skills. The programme evaluation will be released in Summer 2021 whilst the evaluation toolkit ‘Understanding the Difference you Make’ and interactive storyboard exploring career transitions and digital platforms are openly available.
Prior to joining Nesta, Liz spent over nine years at the Greater London Authority in various roles spanning intelligence, regeneration and economic development, and skills and employment.
Liz is passionate about the role of education in equalising opportunity and changing peoples lives no matter the person’s age. During her time at Nesta, Liz achieved a Bachelors Degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics at the Open University.
In her spare time, Liz enjoys running, hiking, and travelling. Liz managed to adopt a small menagerie in the lockdown of four chickens, three cats and a dog, which keep her busy until travelling is allowed again.
