Programme Development Manager | Ignite!
I have worked in informal learning since the age of 16. I discovered my passion lay in increasing opportunities for young people to enable them to flourish.
Over the last 6 years I have been working with Ignite!, working to increase young people’s and their families engagement and access to S.T.E.M education. Leading on developing 3-2-1-Ignition* one of UK’s the first Science Pop Up Shops. Following which I developed Community Curiosity Labs – spaces where young people science learning is driven by questions in some of the hardest to reach areas of Nottingham.
Alongside my work with Ignite! I have worked on a range of other initiatives including running workshops in Dubai and Beirut with charity Spark and Mettle and the British Counci to help build soft skills in over 300 young people.
I am a trustee at young people’s creative learning agency T.M.C and on the advisory board of Dragon Breath Theatre.
