Meet the Team — Employability & Learning Services
Employability & Learning Services Manager
Supports the ALN and Employability teams, contact for SQA and Volunteering Works. Also still active in disability issues and seen suffering most weeks at Firhill Stadium.
Volunteering Development Coordinator (Employability & Young People)
I have been employed at the then Volunteer Centre and now Volunteer Glasgow for over 14 years and I initially spent most of my time in a young people’s volunteering project in the southside of the city. For the last 6 years I have taken up a city-wide remit in developing and promoting volunteering for young people more so at a strategic level. I also have a remit for the overseeing of the Scottish Government’s Saltire Awards National Certification for young people’s volunteering. More recently I have moved into the Employability aspect of Volunteer Glasgow, where I help deliver the SQA Employability Award and I am also a qualified SQA Assessor and Internal Verifier as a result. I enjoy this engagement with the 18-24 years of age category as I can help share my work and volunteering experience with them and also give guidance of employability progression via volunteering.
My principal role is to provide training and development opportunities to managers of volunteers. To this end I facilitate Volunteer Glasgow’s scheduled training events, principally, The Smarter Volunteer Manager Programme. I can also provide an assortment of bespoke solutions to challenges faced by third sector agencies.
