I began my career in 2017 with an undergraduate degree in History from York St John University. Following this, I became a Teaching Assistant within a behavioural unit at a Special Educational Needs School in Leeds. This inspired me to go back to university to gain my Postgraduate Certificate in Education and become a secondary History Teacher, during this time I realised I did not want to pursue within mainstream education and thus continued my journey working with vulnerable young people with additional needs.
I joined Manchester Young Lives as a Teacher in September 2020 for the Alternative Education and quickly progressed to Curriculum Lead in 2021. With the development of the Post 16 employability programmes for young people aged 16 to 24 years, I was appointed Employability Programme Manager for the PEP programme in August 2022, a role which I am thoroughly enjoying.
