Jasmin Choudhury
Jasmin Choudhury is passionate about improving the lives of young people, educators and their families. She believes that a focus on quality first leadership, teaching and learning, mental well-being for all and the sharing of best practice- is vital in delivering a 21st century education and creating world class learners and educators. Having read law from the London School of Economics, she decided to pursue a career in education as that is essentially, the biggest catalyst for making positive starts and changes amongst communities. Jasmin completed her PGCE training from Goldsmiths College, London University, and has extensive experience of working in a variety of settings. These have included being recruited to work in schools in special measures and concern as well as outstanding. Jasmin has been qualified as a teacher for over 20 years and has been a Deputy Head, working mainly in some of the most deprived and challenging schools in the UK. She worked as part of a leadership team who accelerated school improvement and rapidly turned a school in “special measures” to “good with outstanding features” in 9 months. Similarly, she worked with the leadership team to move another school in concern to become “the most improved school” in the borough, within a short period of time. In addition, Jasmin has been a teacher trainer and has worked with leading teacher training institutions in the UK. Currently, Jasmin is a freelance education professional and consultant. Furthermore, she is a foster carer and mental health champion and believes that the most vulnerable people in society deserve the best support, both at home and in education- so that they can succeed, whatever their circumstances.
