Nicky Getgood answers some simple questions

In order to give people an insight into the people behind BEST, we’ve asked the programme management office team to answer some simple questions for a short online profile pieces, which we are posting each Friday. This week we are featuring E-learning Assistant Nicky Getgood:

My role at BEST… I’m BEST E-learning Assistant. My role is to support our E-learning Officer in developing blended learning for the BEST programme – creating e-learning materials, supporting BEST’s training providers and maintaining BEST Bolt, BEST’s online learning environment. I also support the Communications Officer with the development of BEST’s social media and online profiles.

Before I was on the BEST team I was… at Talk About Local, helping individuals and community groups create websites and online profiles for themselves and their localities. A large part of that was creating simple, jargon-free online training materials.

The thing I like most about my job is… the creativity involved. Since joining BEST I’ve created a range of learning materials in a variety of formats, from visuals to illustrate sustainability drivers to screencast videos helping new users of BEST Bolt navigate the environment.

I’m proudest of… My son Rowan. And being brave enough to do it all over again – baby number two is due mid-December.

Personal motto or mantra… Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. A great excuse for not washing vegetables as well as philosophy on life.

BEST are currently recruiting for maternity cover for Nicky’s role… See www.cardiff.ac.uk/jobs (Ref. 2723BR) for details.
