I have lived and worked in Hull and across the Humber area for 40 years, within the public sector and with a range of academic organisations, including schools and the Humber Local Economic Partnership. During that time I have been involved in a number of projects at all levels from early years to higher education, such as the Sure Start and Yorkshire and Humber East Lifelong Learning Network. I have also been a Director and Trustee of several community organisations that have supported learning and skills development in Hull, such as the Learning Shop and Read it Together. Due to this experience I have project, financial and resource management skills. In my leisure time I belong to a community theatre group and I am still a Trustee for a Learning organisation and a volunteer for a community organisation in the local area.

My name is Carole Carmichael and I am a governor here at Aspire Academy. I am from the local area and have lived in East Hull all my life. For the last 12 years I have worked as a Teaching Assistant at a local primary. If any parents need any help or advice I am available.

Even though my experience is within the primary setting, I appreciate the hard work which goes into the running of a senior school and I know the importance of a good education and a supportive environment.

I enjoy being a part of the Academy and sharing in its many achievements.
