Executive Director
Susana Galván - Taith Executive Director

Susana has overall responsibility for the strategy, performance, and successful delivery of  the Taith Programme. Susana works with senior staff from Welsh Government and the Programme’s target sectors to promote the interests and values of Taith across Wales and internationally.

I was really excited to join Taith in February 2022 and to lead such a brilliant team and such a unique and ground-breaking programme for Wales. Taith aims to create life-changing, wide-ranging and far-reaching mobility and exchange opportunities for people across Wales, across all sectors. International education and exchanges, and cross-cultural understanding are areas that I am truly passionate about, not just as someone who benefitted from such experiences as a young person, but also as these are the areas of work which I have dedicated the entirety of my professional life to. I am very proud and privileged to be part of a programme which is designed for Wales, with Wales and by Wales, and of what Taith so ambitiously and boldly aims to achieve. I look forward to witnessing the benefits that Taith will provide to its participants, both those going from Wales to the world as well as from the world into Wales, and to hearing all about their unique “journey” with Taith!

Taith is a wonderful opportunity for learners and education practitioners in Wales to increase their international dimension.

As a Grant Officer, Matthew helps the Taith team to manage grants, gives advice and guidance to programme applicants and participants, and supports the day to day operation of projects.

Having previously worked on Erasmus+ I have heard so many inspirational stories on the impact international mobility has had on participants. I’m grateful to be part of the Taith team working on such an editing programme that will provide so many opportunities to the learners of Wales.
