I’m Alison, the School and Youth Visits Manager at WWF-UK. Through this blog I hope to share my experience of working with fantastic groups of students and schools who are inspired to learn more about the environment and sustainability.
My background is working in primary and higher education. As a former deputy head teacher and then education officer at WWF-UK, I have lots of experience in developing curriculum-linked workshops for school groups, as well as more informal activities for young people and families.
In my role as Courses Manager at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION), I delivered training courses, workshops, lectures and developed resources across a wide range of learning styles and abilities. I’m delighted to return to WWF-UK as the School and Youth Visits Manager and I’m keen to ensure visits to the LPC are engaging and inspiring.
