Bethan’s role is to lead the administrative side of the team, and to provide an administrative service to the Taith team, while engaging with a wide range of stakeholders to meet operational and programme requirements.
The Taith programme is hugely beneficial to Wales and it is exciting to know that I will be part of a team who are helping provide international travel opportunities to people from all different backgrounds. It is also nice to be working with a group of people who are passionate about providing these opportunities.
Michele provides an administrative service to the team by engaging and completing a range of routine tasks to meet operational and programme requirements.
Having studied and taught Sociology, I value and understand the importance of cross-cultural experiences and how they enrich lives. I am especially excited to be part of such a programme which extends this life-changing opportunity to those who would not normally have access to such an experience.
Leah monitors, supports and plans board, resources and capacity. Leah is involved in most of the portfolios including resource management systems, IT systems, processes and programming for the programme.
I think Taith has the potential to open up opportunities for so many people across Wales and the world. I’m excited to find out more about the organisations and projects that can offer these and how we can help them to do this. We have a really dedicated and passionate team who I love working with. I have a lot of experience managing grant programmes in the voluntary and youth sectors in Wales, both national and international as well as a background in IT systems content development.
In my role as Grants Officer, I will be supporting the Taith team in the grants management cycle, providing advice and guidance to programme applicants and participants, and supporting the day-to-day operation of projects.
I have 14 years of experience in Further Education, where I worked to support those who may not have otherwise been able to access the learning opportunities that they had. I am so happy to be able to apply my knowledge, experience and passion to now work with the Taith team to help successful applicants take part in such an innovative and exciting programme.
