Head of Learner Services and Resources - Cath Hicks
I joined Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales (then WEA South Wales) as a HR specialist in 2008, following previous HR roles in both the private and not for profit sectors. Since this time my role within the organisation has developed continuously, and I am currently Head of Learner Services and Resources.
As a member of the organisation’s Senior Management team, my areas of responsibility include Learner Services, Marketing, Health Safety and Environment, Welsh and Bilingualism, Digital Development and HR. Reporting to the Chief Executive, I provide strategic leadership, management, and development of the HR strategy and the learner services strategy in support of the Strategic Plan and financial objectives. I also lead the promotion and development of an active Welsh language offer in all the organisation’s activities at a strategic level, ensuring that the bilingual nature of the organisation is projected effectively throughout Wales.
I am a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD) and a Welsh learner at Foundation level. In my spare time I enjoy running, and have taken part in half-marathons previously. I also enjoy horse-riding whenever I can.
