Federation Business Manager

Mrs Heidi Last


I joined Exe Valley Federation in May 2018 as the Federation Business Manager, then became Clerk to Governors in the September.

I have worked in education for the past 18 years based at the same school for most of this time. I started off as an MTA and then progressed to a Teaching Assistant supporting children with additional needs, then a Higher Level Teaching Assistant. In 2005 I moved from the classroom into the school office as the admin assistant and ICT support, which was a new challenge that I thoroughly enjoyed. From there I progressed to School Business Manager after completing my Certificate in School Business Management in in 2013. After 18 years in the same school and with all my children now older, I felt it was time to move on to a new challenge, and the role of FBM across a federation of 4 schools really appealed to me. Since joining the federation I have really enjoyed working across all the schools and have been made to feel welcome by all the staff, governors, children and families.

I am looking forward to the future challenges a new role can bring.
