Judy Curry

I am an alumna of the University of Oxford having graduated with an Honours Degree in Mathematics in 1973.

My professional involvement with education is primarily as Chief Executive of the Commonwealth Education Trust. The Trust invests in primary and secondary education and training and professional development of teachers in the Commonwealth. The Trust works in partnership with educationalists to use financial and business skills to structure sustainable, scalable and transferrable projects based on applied research. The Trust has established a Centre for Commonwealth Education in partnership with the University of Cambridge to provide a unique means of delivering benefits in the field of youth education to the nations of the Commonwealth.

My own background is in finance and I have had the privilege during the last ten years of working closely with educationalists from schools, universities and ministries across the Commonwealth to help structure innovative education programmes.

Through this work I have become involved in many of the key issues facing education today and have met many dedicated, experienced and extremely knowledgeable people. I would like to have the opportunity to use these networks and this experience to support the work of the Oxford Education Society.
