Sector-leading Tutor is recognised22-January-2021
Marilyn Thomas is a sector-leading tutor who delivers a number of professional development courses including, Award in Education and Training, Train the Trainer, ACBU, Safeguarding and CPD. With her extensive experience, first in the Police, then as a teacher, she brings a breadth of knowledge and real dedication to her role at Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales.
In what has been a very difficult year for everyone, Marilyn has developed her own digital skills and has generously supported others.
One tutor reflects,
“Lockdown was an extremely difficult time for me. Marilyn contacted me about getting involved in developing a new course with herself and a couple of other tutors. It was difficult at first but once I confided in Marilyn what I was feeling, she became a great source of support and encouragement. She helped me to realise that I wasn’t alone and was always happy to help whether it be work related or just a general chat. Being the kind hearted and supportive person that she is, she doesn’t realise how much of an impact her actions had and I will be forever grateful. Marilyn truly is a fantastic colleague as well as an excellent tutor.”
Marilyn is a trusted colleague who can be relied upon and always leads by example.
“For me no matter what heights of education a learner achieves, it is my ability to motivate and encourage them to develop and raise their self-esteem that gives me the ‘buzz’ the love of teaching. I could have retired long ago, but this means so much for me, I’m making a difference in people’s lives, I do get a feel-good factor from giving something back.”
Congratulations Marilyn, thanks for your continued efforts and we wish you the best for this year’s Inspire Awards from everyone at Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales.
