Cathy is a Sheffield-based tutor, who has been generously working with TalentEd as an ambassador doing outreach in her local area to schools and local fundraising bodies. She has recently completed a half marathon that you can read about here and is looking for other interested athletes to run a TalentEd team. Here’s what she had to say about her involvement with the charity.
I really enjoy working closely with young people and helping them to achieve their personal and academic potential. Tutoring small groups is a brilliant way to establish a positive rapport and to help youngsters to build the confidence, motivation and self-belief necessary to help them succeed. I am really excited and proud to be representing TalentEd and to be contributing to closing the attainment gap in this way.
If you are interested in getting involved as an ambassador like Cathy, we would be delighted to hear about your interests and skills, email firstname.lastname@example.org
