Barbara Armitage – Global Director of School Placement.
Barbara has worked in the UK education sector at Senior Management level for over 17 years and was Director of Development at Wycombe Abbey. In this role she spent much time liaising with families in South East Asia, and elsewhere in the world, establishing close relationships which enabled her to gain a deep understanding of what parents and children look for when considering a UK education.
As a Fellow of the Institute of Development Professionals In Education, she has an extensive knowledge of the UK’s leading schools which has been invaluable in her consultancy work, building strong relationships with those schools and with overseas families globally.
Her work in schools and her own experience as a parent and school governor have also given her a detailed insight into the journey students make throughout their time at school and then onto their chosen university.
She says, “Parents from overseas have great faith in a UK education when they send their children here. I have always regarded it as a great privilege to support them and help them to achieve their academic ambitions so I am delighted to be working with Minerva Tutors International who are leaders in their field”.
