My career spans over a 20-year period and in that time, I have always worked in Training and Development, primarily for disadvantaged families and the organisations that support them. I have worked in a number of different subject areas; these include: Safeguarding, design, delivery and management of training packages, learning and development, building risk and resilience, early intervention, setting up services for families, commissioning services, writing, implementing and performance managing strategies, quality standards, engagement and participation, service development, consultation, parenting programme delivery and co-ordination, training and development and home visiting.
