Leslie Watson
Education Coordinator, Kilmarnock
 
I currently work in two different roles for the WEA, (0.5 Employability Fund Project & 0.5 Personal Assistants Network Project).
 
Employability Fund - I organise, develop and deliver skills training and engage with employers to help find the right people for their vacancies.
 
Personal Assistants Network Project – Develop and evolve the Government funded PA Network Project throughout Scotland, I co-manage the project which requires us to work within budget and deliver excellent value for money. I also organise the delivery of skills training to Personal Assistants and develop good working relationships with Self Directed Support (SDS) organisations to arrange partnership working that helps spread the word about SDS and co-produce SDS events to ensure that we maximise our budget.
 
I have 9 years of experience of developing and delivering education, a qualified SVQ Assessor, with excellent customer service skills and experience, and a proven ability to get on well with people from all walks of life. All of the above are required to do my job to a high standard.
 
I love the variety that my job offers and I get great satisfaction from helping people improve their skill levels and/or find work.. Anyone who finds work, especially if they have been out of work for a long period, automatically improves their life for the better.
