Western Region Representative
|I have really enjoyed my first year as EPEA representative for the Western Region. Thank you for all your support. I was delighted to meet members from Ireland recently when I spoke at the Irish Prison Education Association (IPEA) conference on the theme of wellbeing.
(Me, centre, with EPEA members Deirdre Brannan & Dr. Jane Corrigan at IPEA Conference in November 2016).
I also enjoyed meeting other Western Region EPEA members, including from Belgium, at the FORINER Erasmus + meeting held in London. I organised a prison education conference in Wales in September and enjoyed a visit to Scotland to meet EPEA members at the launch of the Scottish Prison Service prison education strategy. I was due to visit a prison sports project in France during the summer, but unfortunately it was cancelled after the tragic events in Paris. I look forward to re-arranging that visit in 2017 and also hope to visit members in Holland and Belgium.
Please do contact me if you have an event you would like me to speak at in the Western Region next year I will certainly try my best to attend!
