Description of Work in DE

As education officer with Burrenbeo Trust, I am involved in development and delivery of place-based learning progammes at primary and secondary levels as well as for adult learners. The programmes facilitate engagement with local places, their built, natural and cultural heritage while encourage active stewardship behaviour. In October 2019, I'm beginning an IRC funded employment based PhD project, focused on quantifying and analysing the impact of Burrenbeo Trust's work and subsequently how our models can be shared with other interested communities.
