As Head of Policy, Funding and Regulation, in Strategy and Planning, Dr Macpherson Barrett heads the team that makes student-related statutory returns, monitors Access Agreement targets and fulfils other regulatory duties.

She played a leading role our TEF (Teaching Excellence Framework) submission, for which Leeds was awarded Gold in 2017. This means the independent TEF panel judged that we deliver “consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for our students, of the highest quality found in the UK”.

Dr Macpherson Barrett also helps us contribute to, and benefit from, the rapidly changing regulatory landscape.

The Women of Achievement Awards recognise the significant contribution and impact women at Leeds are making across our institution and beyond.

Held for the fifth time last year, the Awards are a key part of our Leeds Gender Framework. They are integral to our commitment to further promote and accelerate gender equality, support the career development of talented women in all areas of the organisation, and provide high-visible role models that will inspire others to develop and thrive.

The outstanding achievements of 15 female colleagues and students were recognised at last year’s Women of Achievement Awards.

They celebrate the significant contributions and impact the winners have made across the University and beyond. The women receiving awards were all nominated by their peers, and represent academic and professional staff, as well as students, and are drawn from across campus.

They all share a common commitment to excellence and have performed outstandingly in their fields, whether this be in research, student education or student experience, scholarship, leadership of key University initiatives, or supporting administrative and technical activities.
