Meet Kayleigh Morley
The School of Education is fortunate to have a technical service team on hand to provide support and access to great facilities including laser cutting, vinyl cutting, 3D printing, robots, experiments, graphic design examples, photography, programming, animation, and much more!
We recently caught up with Kayleigh Morley, who is the Technical Manager for the School of Education to find out more about her role at Brighton.
Can you say a little about your role?
I manage a team of technicians that look after the various workshops, laboratories, and specialist teaching spaces in the Checkland building on the Falmer campus. We also provide students with resources for their sessions and projects.
I have worked at the University of Brighton since 2007 first as a technician in the School of Sport and Health supporting PhD students, then as a technician focusing on clinical skills and clinical simulation and now, I am here as Technical Manager for the School of Education.
What are you most proud of in your career?
I received the Technician Outstanding Individual at the One Brighton Awards (2021-22) for Team Contribution to Teaching & Learning.
What’s your favourite part of your job and why?
I enjoy the management part of my role, being able to support staff and students to help them develop, and see them leave our spaces with a smile on their face is something that I never get tired of.
What advice would you give prospective students?
My advice would be to come to the open days and see the resources for yourself. We will do our level best to support students in any way that we can.
