Charlene Simms

STEM Education and Outreach Manager - Thales UK

Prior to Thales, I had a variety of roles including teaching in FE and Pupil Referral Units and working in Widening Participation at the University of Chichester. Helping young people to realise their potential has always been my passion, having not followed the most traditional route through the education system myself. I am driven to support all young people no matter what their background or past. I always loved STEM subjects at school, but like many young women, was not encouraged to take them any further, which is why I love the job that I currently do at Thales.
