Marie Elliot - Volunteer

Marie has nine years experience working as a learning support assistant with adults, young people and children with learning disabilities/difficulties.

Marie started with LookwideUK in October 2010 after working in a Family Learning Team for a Premier Division Football Club.  Here she supported and taught after-school sessions to families.  Topics covered included healthy eating, healthy lifestyle, coaching skills and teamwork as well as physical activities and games.

Marie volunteers every week with us and enjoys seeing young people develop their self-confidence, and improve their attitudes and motivation.  She assists the Development Tutors and supports young people in small groups or on a 1:1 basis.  She currently works at a local FE college supporting young people to gain qualifications in a range of subjects e.g. childcare, hairdressing, multimedia, IT, and employability.  In her spare time, Marie enjoys walking, painting and singing in a community choir.
