Hi, I’m Jolene, I currently deliver courses for UR Potential. Recent courses I have delivered are Surviving the Teenage Years, Building confidence and Reaching UR Potential.
My employment background includes working on projects, working in education and working in Public Services. I have worked with a wide range of people, of all ages and of all cultures. I have recently qualified as a teacher.
My hobbies include reading which is a good job as I am currently studying for an MA in English Literature at night school, which involves huge amounts of reading!
My new role within the UR Potential Team is a Digital Engagement Project Coordinator for the Building Better Opportunities Digital Inclusion Project.This project is to support people who may want or need some training in using IT to prevent them from becoming excluded from the job market and job opportunities, it does this by removing any barriers people may have in using IT.
It also involves recruiting some digital IT buddies ,who, once trained can help others in learning how to use IT to prevent any social or job market exclusion.
