I joined MYT in January 2014 as the Opt-Into Re-Engagement Coordinator. The main objective of this role is to help young people who may have become disillusioned with education and future opportunities by ‘opting-into’ the opportunities available to them and helping them move onto suitable training/education/volunteering or employment. I now work in the Skills and Employability Team in Medway supporting 16 to 20 year olds in a similar way on a more one-to-one basis, although I will be running groups in the future. I really enjoy working with young people and helping them to achieve their potential and in the past I have delivered the Team Programme with the Prince’s Trust and worked as a Life Skills Tutor in a supported housing project for young people.
A lot of my spare time is taken up caring for and looking after my 6 year old son. So by day I assist and support young people and by night I transform into a dinosaur/train driver/zoo keeper!!
