I have over 15 years of experience working with young people in roles such as workshop leader, tutor, mentor and programme manager. I am a qualified English, Media and Drama teacher, with a Masters level PGCE. In addition to this, I have many years of experience designing and delivering training for adults.

Teaching and facilitation services I can offer include:

Workshop design and delivery (ages 11-24)

Through my roles working with young people, I have designed and delivered programmes such as:

  • Co-production and insights workshops  – giving young people a voice in services, content, campaigns and programmes that involve them
  • Wellbeing and mental health workshops – educating young people on how to look after their wellbeing and what to do if they need help
  • SRE sessions – educating young people about issues such as consent and healthy relationships
  • Employability workshops – equipping young people with a better understanding of the world of work and developing their skills
  • Communication skills and public speaking workshops

Across my career, I have worked with young people between the ages of 3 to 24 but specialise in working with those aged 11 to 24. Due to my extensive experience, I have the skills required to design and lead engaging, creative and meaningful learning opportunities for young people on a broad range of topics.

I have designed and delivered extensive training programmes for adults during my time in the charity sector, including sessions on:

  • Volunteer Management (Basics and Advanced)
  • Tutoring

  • Safeguarding and Risk Assessing

I would be delighted to speak to you about your organisation’s training needs and to explore how I can deliver existing programmes or develop and lead a course to meet your requirements.
