6th October 2021 - Kayla Herbert

Lisa creates and supports the development of Local Cultural Partnerships across West Yorkshire, identifying new and building on existing relationships between the education, arts and culture sectors.

Lisa’s background is predominantly education based (PGCE, BA (Hons) Learning & Teaching, CELTA & C&G7302). Since 2009, she has worked in the education sector as an English Language Teacher (16+) and a Primary School Teacher (4-11yrs), working in a leadership role, with an additional focus on English as an Additional Language. Prior to this, Lisa also taught English as a Foreign Language in Turkey, volunteered as an ESOL teacher for refugees in Leeds and was a keen advocate and representative for Corporate Social Responsibility. Celebrating culture and diversity within the community is something Lisa is passionate about and sees the Arts and Culture sector as a way to achieve this.

Lisa is a ‘Yorkshire lass, born and bred’ and enjoys keeping fit by walking in local green spaces with her husband and two children. She loves languages (fluent Turkish, Primary teacher of Spanish and & learnt Greek), trying new recipes, is a novice gardener, loves dogs and would love to do more travelling when the world picks up again.
