‘It was a wonderful opportunity for me to join Taith in May, it is such a lovely team to work for and its a unique programme to be part of and the first of its kind for Wales.  The programme aims to give life-changing experiences for people in Wales to study, train, volunteer and work all over the world.  This programme is exciting and rewarding and it is a privilege to be part of it.’

Ellie Bevan - Head of Policy, Programmes & Engagement

Ellie Bevan

Head of Policy, Programmes & Engagement

Ellie works on all things Schools and Youth, from developing the programme and policies, to raising awareness of the programme in the sectors and supporting organisations to apply for Taith funding.

I am really lucky to have had the chance to travel and work abroad in a number of different countries. These experiences have had a hugely positive impact on my life and career and so I’m really excited to work on a programme which enables other young people to have these opportunities. I have a background in widening access, and have seen the huge impact that international experiences can have on the lives of young people.  I’m therefore particularly keen to make sure the Taith programme is accessible and inclusive, and provides opportunities for children and young people who may not otherwise have the chance to travel abroad.

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.

I’m thrilled to be part of this team as I know first hand the benefits from exchange programmes.  This is an exciting opportunity for learners in Wales to learn from others internationally as well as for us to host international visitors and showcase the best of Wales. I look to bring positivity and support to all of the team and look forward to embracing all of the challenges that lie ahead.
