Isobelle and her team are responsible for building up strong relationships with schools and colleges, as well as communities and networks across the region.

Passionate about creating real access to education, optimising the student journey and experience, Isobelle and her team take a hyper-personalised approach to ensure those who are first in family to go to university are provided with the support and guidance they need.
