Perrie led on the development of curriculum for innovation and learning design and worked with various strategic partners to develop offerings.

Perrie is a learning designer and researcher who has spent the past seven years developing expertise in innovation methods and practice, and working directly with innovators across public services, the voluntary sector and arts and cultural organisations.

Before joining Nesta, Perrie worked for Innovation Unit, an innovation support agency that spun out of the Department of Education to become a social enterprise supporting innovators across public services. 

Perrie first worked for the Unit as an evaluator of its Next Practice in Education programme, which involved research with over 60 groups of schools in the UK and developed innovation methods and practices that have spread to Australia, Canada and the United States.

She later joined the organisation as Head of Learning and Project Development for Innovation Exchange, a 3-year programme delivered for the Office for the Third Sector in the Cabinet Office.

Perrie has also worked as a consultant across a range of major programmes, including Sir Jim Rose's Primary Curriculum Review and National College for School Leadership's Networked Learning Programme.

Before moving to the UK in 2005, Perrie worked for five years as a lecturer and researcher in History and Cultural Studies at the University of Melbourne. She designed and ran courses for the university and for private educational providers. She has a PhD and Bachelors' Degree (Honours) from the same institution.
