Dr Alli Jones


I am the Associate Head of Kingston Business School.  My role is to support the Head of School, the Heads of Departments and members of the School Management Group to deliver the School's Transformation Plan.  My role is to enhance the performance and reputation of the School by driving holistic improvements to the student experience through Learning and Teaching and the School's portfolio or programmes.

I have over 23+ years' experience in the HE sector, having held all academic roles from Lecturer to Executive Dean.  I have a strong reputation for innovation and partnership working to maximise benefits to, and of, the HE sectors in the UK and internationally.  I am committed to delivering a high-quality experience for students and all stakeholders.

I am particularly passionate about ensuring that our programmes are genuinely industry informed, and that our graduates leave KBS with 5 key attributes – a degree, connections to industry, the character and employability skills to succeed, technical qualifications and relevant accreditations.

I am a QAA reviewer for International Quality Reviews and chair Quality and Standards committees for a Further Education College and an Awarding Organisation.
