National Space Academy Administrator, National Space Centre  

Amy is the National Space Academy Administrator and is based at the National Space Centre in Leicester; she joined the team in September 2013.


 Before starting at the National Space Centre, Amy worked for a financial company running the administration for the whole Telemarketing Department, gaining vast amount of experience within the administration role.

In 2008, she decided to return to education, on a full time basis, where she gained her A-Level qualifications before attending university. At De Montfort University, in Leicester, Amy gained a BA with Honours in Education Studies; developing on how people learn, Amy gained extensive knowledge on the historical, political, social and psychological aspects of education. She decided to put her skills, learnt, to the test when she volunteered in Thailand to help teach young children the English language through the context of play.

During her studies, and before starting with the National Space Academy Amy worked, for 5 years, as a Space Crew Member within the National Space Centre this allowed her to gain good experience of its daily operations.

"It is great to see young people learn through the mechanism of space exploration. Throughout my degree, the importance placed on STEM subjects was highlighted and now to be a part of a team that uses different techniques to allow young people to learn these subjects is great. The National Space Academy allows me to use not only my administration skills but also my enthusiasm for education and learning"
