She was responsible for setting up a postgraduate bursary scheme which offers £6000 bursaries towards the fees for students on a range of MA courses including publishing, photojournalism, magazine journalism, digital media and packaging design.
Sue is now chairing Shine, the Stationers' School Media Awards initiative which encourages pupils at schools across the UK to participate in the creation of print and digital magazines. Shine is now in its 4th year and goes from strength to strength. Hundreds of schools enter their student-led magazines and then there is a wonderful awards event at Stationers' Hall every June.
As well as being a Governor of Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy, Sue also sits on the Governors' Sub-committee of Sherwood, one of the SCWA 11-16 schools, on Leigh Academies Trust's Academic Standards Committee and on the Stationers’/SCWA Curriculum Development Committee.
