Current and Previous Work Experience: I am currently Training Officer for Journeys – a Gofal Project. I design, deliver and continuously evaluate a variety of courses many of which are accredited, related to mental health and well-being. I also train trainers to deliver Journeys’ award winning depression busting course. I was amongst the first cohort to be trained to deliver both Youth and Adult Mental Health First Aid. I thoroughly enjoy delivering these courses.
I also do occasional work for the W.E.A on a variety of issues including Confidence Building and Alcohol Awareness.
I have delivered courses for Women Making a Difference including Women For A Change, related to Community Development and the Active Citizens Course.
Prior to working for Journeys I worked for UNISON as their regional education officer where I worked with a team of volunteer stewards and officers to write, deliver and evaluate courses as well as promoting and marketing courses and being responsible for a sizable budget.
