I have worked for the WEA for 15 years, as a tutor organiser and then as Regional Education Manager for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight and IT. I was responsible for the development of the Omega Centre and the redevelopment of the Clovelly Centre. I have been a volunteer in Southampton helping to develop a volunteer network and I am the WEA nominated trustee on the board of the Regents Park Learning Trust in Southampton.
