Kate has led the development of a range of Thinkuknow educational resources and campaigns, and delivers CEOP's Ambassador training course. Kate's background is in secondary education where she taught English, PSHE and Drama, and she also has experience in the not-for-profit sector developing local children's services and managing community education programmes for children and adults.
