Caroline is currently the Project Manager of the Cambridge Schools Classics Project. The Project promotes and supports the teaching of Latin and other Classical subjects in UK schools.

Before this she was the Classics and Religious Studies Subject Specialist at the exam board OCR (part of Cambridge Assessment). This role included leading on the creation of new qualifications, and working with the Department for Education and Ofqual to develop subject specific guidelines and regulations. She also oversaw the production of supporting resources, handled publisher relationships, and devised and led the CPD for her subjects.

Caroline has taught a variety of subjects in the state sector at GCSE, AS and A Level, including Classical Civilisation, Classical Greek, Religious Studies, Philosophy and Anthropology. She also has experience teaching for the IB, as an EPQ Coordinator, and as an A Level examiner for AQA.

She has been involved in outreach work, especially in terms of access to Classics and to Higher Education, since her time as an undergraduate and then postgraduate student at Oxford University. As a teacher, she specialised in pastoral care, and designed programmes for high achieving students aimed at widening participation in Higher Education.
