Francesca Lashmar

Staff Governor

Having started my career in Travel and Tourism as a tour guide at Dover Castle, I ended up as a regional manager in the heritage and cultural sector, delivering Heritage Lottery Projects. I joined EKC Group, in 2018 in a support staff capacity and am grateful for the encouragement and resource invested in me during my journey toward becoming a lecturer. It will be exciting to be part of the Full Governing Body as we move toward the next phase of delivering a new strategy which helps us deliver for our young people and local communities.

We are a group of six community-based colleges

Our mission is to play a leading role for East Kent in developing the economic and social prosperity of the diverse communities we serve.
