My research on global aspects of educational reform including the exporting of aspects of the New Public Management informed a Leadership and Management conference and subsequent dialogue with HE and school leaders in this context.

Management and leadership in further education
Responsible for the development and implementation of one of the first university accredited courses for managers working in F.E. sector colleges. This work was undertaken within a consortium of four universities (the Universities of Brighton, Hull, Manchester and Warwick) working closely with the F.E. sector employers bodies, the Association of Colleges and the Association of Principals of VI Form Colleges. I acted as Chair of this Consortium.

Commissioned by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) to act as Lead Writer in the development of the Advanced Business GNVQ  course specifications. I was also a member of the 'A' level Business Studies Subject Criteria Committee and the GCSE Economics Accreditation Committee at QCA and was engaged in reviewing specifications for the vocational GCSE in Business. At the time this work placed me at the forefront of national developments in the economics and business education curriculum.

Reform of Higher Education in Mongolia
I acted as co-director of this project and as a curriculum development consultant undertaking work both in the UK and Mongolia. The focus was on working with academic counterparts and administrators to reform the curriculum and curriculum support structures at the National University of Mongolia. This involved working with Mongolian counterparts and business administration and economics academics from the UK and abroad to develop a new undergraduate curriculum in accounting, business and economics. As part of this I chaired the Curriculum Development Working Party and was instrumental in the development of an independent study centre and materials production centre. The project was funded by the EU Technical Assistance for the Commonwealth of Independent States (TACIS).
