Manager: Ms Jo-Anne Miles-Levet
Ms Jo-Anne Miles-Levet, is currently a non-executive director at Class Act. Her practical skill and experience in project management have been refined over the years in various jobs and undertakings.
Jo reveals some of her insights below.
As a child, what I loved most about school was learning! I loved the acquisition of new and interesting information. I still hear myself asking colleagues / friends to…’tell me something interesting’.
The management role I play for Class Act involves the practical day to day management of people and projects from supervising office staff to overseeing a team of writers. I am committed to managing operations and projects flawlessly.
Something I have learnt about management from Class Act is that ideas are easy, but execution is difficult. I admire how Class Act have mastered this skill and continue to find success implementing projects and policy effectively.
I consider my greatest achievement to be raising my child. It is without doubt the biggest learning experience I’ve had (and the most interesting and rewarding).
One day I plan to write a children’s book.
In order to transform you need the will – and a practical action plan of course. In order to transform education all stakeholders need to put the learners first, and be willing to embrace structural change.
I believe that Class Act given the opportunity and funding has the skill, determination, innovation, people, passion, and the integrity to bring about a significant change in education in South Africa.
I draw inspiration from the wonderful abundance of creativity and innovation present in the world.
My personal motto is life rewards action. Intention without action is meaningless. As Nike put it ‘Just Do It!’
