Anne Paddington

Regional Youth Programmes Manager North Wales

Hi, my name is Anne and I am a Youth Liasion Offer for North Wales. I was born and raised in North Wales and have a great love for the area.

At university I studied to be a primary school teacher and have been teaching for over 10 years. I have always enjoyed working with children and young people and am passionate about ensuring that they are given opportunities and support to enable them to reach their full potential. I am especially pleased to be able to offer these opportunities to young people who are growing up in the same part of the country that I did. I am especially grateful to the people who supported me as a young person. Without their help and encouragement, I very much doubt I would have had the confidence to undertake a post graduate course which has given me the skills and experience I have today and I hope to provide similar inspiration to the next generation.

My main role in JET will be to carry out the inspirational outreach sessions across North Wales and I am looking forward to visiting many schools and creating new links.
