Joanna works exclusively for higher and further education clients. She has over 20 years’ experience of advising the sector on a wide variety of student-related issues including policies and procedures, discipline, complaints and appeals, equality and immigration.

She also advises on governance, constitutional and regulatory issues and on academic collaborations both at home and overseas.

Joanna’s deep affinity for the education sector is reflected in her responsive approach and her practical, applied and thorough advice.

"We’re delighted to be at the beginning of a partnership between two teams who share the same winning spirit and focus on supporting talent to achieve their potential. Everyone here has a great sense of pride and excitement to be working with Team England – a team that, after all, reflects just how much can be achieved by a diverse and varied group of individuals all focused on one goal. We can’t wait to get started."
