& About

Josie Fraser  Josie Fraser

I work as an independent consultant, primarily supporting governments, not-for-profits and the education sector.

Since 2015 I’ve been a trustee of Wikimedia UK, a charity dedicated to collecting, developing, promoting and distributing open knowledge. Wikimedia UK is the local Wikimedia chapter covering the United Kingdom and supports volunteer editors of, and contributors to, Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects.

Between 2010 – 2016 I worked for Leicester City Council, as Technology Lead for one of the UK’s largest and most accelerated school improvement programmes. The city’s £340 million Building Schools for the Future Programme delivered 23 new and refurbished schools for secondary mainstream and special education communities. It was a strategic role which included all the managerial, commercial/financial, legal, HR, implementation and operational issues that make up a large, complex programme focused on organisational development and change.

My work for Council included making sure learners across the city get the most possible benefit from the investment in new buildings, IT infrastructure, connectivity, systems, and equipment, by supporting school leaders and staff in making creative and effective use of hardware, software and digital environments.  The DigiLit Leicester workforce development project was an internationally recognised new, effective approach to understanding and supporting digital literacy in the context of professional practice.
