Here’s how Jill became a Parental Engagement Campaign Manager with the Integrated Education Fund
Did you go on to further/ higher education, if so what did you study and where?
I completed my B.Ed. in Primary School Education, specialising in Art at Stranmillis University College Belfast. I then decided to go back to study a few years ago, and completed a MSC part-time in Community Youth Work at Ulster University.
How did you get into your area of work?
I have spent years facilitating difficult conversations with a wide range of stakeholders and this, combined with my passion for education and improving the lives of young people, has led me to my current role. Working with families previously also allowed me greater insight into engaging with parents.
