Kathleen Bailey
Junior Research and Evaluation Consultant

Kathleen Bailey

I’m a Junior Research and Evaluation Consultant at Renaisi, working in the Consultancy Team. I joined Renaisi in October 2020 and work on several projects supporting charities and grant funders with learning and evaluation through the coronavirus pandemic and into the future.

My experience and skills

I hold an LL.B. in Law from University College London and am finishing off my dissertation for an MSc in African Development from the London School of Economics.

I am an experienced facilitator, having worked with Hopkins Van Mil to deliver a range of public dialogue workshops including the Citizens’ Biometrics Council and the National Food Strategy in 2020. I previously worked as an analyst at Traverse, coding qualitative data and co-writing reports for public consultations.

I am also an experienced private tutor, specialising in Maths and History. Through Manning’s agency and the Get Further programme I have worked in schools, academies and further education colleges to deliver curriculum support and catch-up tuition to disadvantaged students.

In 2018 I was selected to participate on a DFID-funded International Citizen Service placement with an international development charity. I lived with a host family and a fellow Ghanaian volunteer in a suburb of Accra and worked in partnership with a local business to support its growth. In 2019 I travelled to Kenya to volunteer as a Project Coordinator for a charity called Education Partnerships Africa, which works collaboratively with schools and headteachers themselves to improve the quality of secondary education through investment in infrastructure, strategy and learning initiatives.

My interests

I enjoy pilates, yoga and hiking during my free time, and I am a dedicated reader looking to set up a blog to share my book reviews with more people. I am currently working towards improving my cooking skills, so far, my speciality is an excellent risotto.
