Hayley became Managing Director in June 2020 having spent over ten years working at CFE. She is responsible for the strategic direction of the organisation working closely with the wider executive team. Hayley leads CFE’s work in the area of wellbeing, and has particular expertise in the role that physical activity and sport can play in the achievement of social outcomes. She regularly works with policy-makers, sector bodies, and delivery organisations to understand ‘what works’ in increasing and sustaining physical activity for adults and young people – both overall and amongst specific target groups. Hayley also has a wealth of expertise in issues relating to teacher supply, including the impact of leadership development programmes and continuing professional development for leaders and teachers in school settings both at the individual and whole-school level. CFE’s studies have directly informed the design of government policy including the reformed National Professional Qualification delivery model.
