Claire Howard

Claire comes from an employment background in accounting and finance, with an education background in teaching and psychology. Previously, she worked for a social housing and rehab/homelessness charity in the finance department, which sparked an interest in working to improve the lives of others and her employment with Open Development and Education.

Claire obtained her psychology degree with honors from The Open University whilst working full-time, which led her to go on to study for a teaching qualification. This resulted in Claire obtaining a Master’s level qualification (PGCE) in teaching A Level psychology, and Claire incorporates the skills and knowledge obtained through these qualifications in her day-to-day role.
