Simon Hill
Head of Partnerships

Simon joined Enabling Enterprise in September 2013 from the National Council for Voluntary Organisations. Simon is a parent governor of Furzedown Primary School, where he works with governors, staff and parents to ensure that the school continues to improve and that all children enjoy a stimulating learning environment.

Robert Craig
Head of Operations and Strategy

Robert is responsible for the strategic direction and running of Enabling Enterprise as an organisation. As treasurer of an alternative provision school in Hackney he came to see the importance of educational outcomes, particularly for those from less privileged backgrounds.

Prior to Enabling Enterprise, Robert worked in Public Sector Strategy and Operations at KPMG as well as at Social Finance.

Chris Cuckson
Interim Head of School Programmes

With a degree in Italian and music, Chris’s career started in media, organising BAFTA ceremonies and working in TV production. Then changing course with a desire to make a difference, he trained to become a primary class teacher and phase leader in Hackney.

Chris joined Enabling Enterprise after having seen the impact of the projects in his own school. Chris leads our work in North London, and in the East of England and loves running projects in schools and businesses which help prepare young people for success in the real world, while still having lots of fun along the way!

Maryam Darby
‍‍
Interim Head of School Network

Prior to working at Enabling Enterprise, Maryam was a Primary School Teacher for 7 years in a South London School. She discovered a passion for project-driven learning teaching her students about the media industry with the Lambeth CLC, The Southbank Centre and the BFI.

This inspired Maryam to work for Enabling Enterprise, where she now manages the South London & South East region.

Claire Bayley
‍‍‍
Regional Manager North of England

Claire always wanted to be a teacher, and share her love of history. Following her degree, Claire taught for 10 years in Oldham, taking on a variety of roles including accreditation as an Advanced Skills Teacher, Lead Practitioner and as Specialist Leader in Education specialising in Initial Teacher Education.

She brings this passion for learning and for developing enterprise skills to her role at Enabling Enterprise in her role as Regional Manager for the North West.

Our strategic partners financially support us to expand our work - either through developing new programmes or extending into new areas. We couldn’t grow without them and thank them for all their support.
Our member organisations are determined to achieve a greater collective impact as part of this growing coalition.
