Currently the Additional Learning Needs Transition Coordinator, David has spent years working with vulnerable learners with diverse needs and has worked here for over six years. He is dedicated to ensuring that all learners have a voice and are celebrated for their skills and talents as well as their diversity.  He has a wealth of experience supporting vulnerable young adults, including young offenders.

David dedicates almost 100 hours of his spare time each year to ensuring that learners are fully supported and coached to enable them to demonstrate their skills in competitions. He created and led on a first-of-its-kind event by implementing an independent living skills competition, allowing learners with the most complex needs a platform to showcase their talents, compete with peers and gain national recognition for their skills and abilities.

His infectious positive attitude and ethos around what can be achieved with a solution-focused mindset has a dramatic impact on all who meet him. From pan-Wales organisation to individual learners and their families, David is changing lives with his commitment.
