I’m Nicky MacLennan and I’m the Trust’s Youth Outreach Officer for canal college® in Inverness. My role includes recruiting mentors and participants; planning for risks and daily health and safety; managing records; delivering outcomes on our two programme days and ensuring everyone is included and enjoys our sessions.
Before coming to the Trust, I worked as a learning and development specialist delivering SVQ work-based and college qualifications and designing and delivering training courses.
I’m passionate about enabling people to increase their skills and widen their choices and chances. I believe that making use of our natural environment and cultural heritage provides a unique and positive alternative learning platform to meet a range of learning styles.
