Spotlight on CCG Members - Jane Anthony - May 2021

May, 5 2021

Longevity in the workplace is key to maintaining a high professional standard that can inspire others to follow suit. This month’s ‘Spotlight on CCG Members’ has applied such a principle. Let us learn more about Preston based Jane Anthony.

We need to rewind the clock to the 1990’s. This was a time when Jane was cultivating a love for and real interest in higher education in particular the creative industry. Prior to embarking on this venture she was a past President and member of the Preston Incorporated Law Society as well as a member of the Preston Cultural Framework Board.

This gave her the confidence and much needed skills to become Head of Lancashire Law School. But Jane realized her ultimate passion still led in the arts and, so, in May 2018 she became Executive Dean of the Faculty of Culture and the Creative Industries at University of Central Lancashire.

The Faculty oversees education, research and knowledge exchange and is widely recognised for its excellent teaching in the following four subjects:-

  • Arts
  • Media
  • Humanities
  • Language

Jane has gained a fine reputation as a lecturer in the local community. She believes that education provides an opportunity for all and instils an ethos within the Faculty based on a positive mindset and inclusivity. 

Her approach is devised on embedding creativity and enterprise within a trans-discipline strategy to education and she works with a number of external stakeholders, nationally and internationally.

Jane was recently been appointed to the Preston Towns Fund Board as its cultural representative. She is also proud to serve the broader northwest region as a governor at Furness College.

We warmly welcome you on board Jane and we look forward to learning and discovering more about your years of teaching.
