Tutor Rob Burton, motivating and inspiring learners!

Rob has used his own experience of re-training as an adult, changing his profession from working at British Steel to becoming a brilliant Youth Work Tutor. His passion in Youth Work came from a direct response of volunteering with young people in his area. His excellent communication and teaching skills has supported those who are new to Youth Work, who have no qualifications, that then go on to work as a Youth Worker or train at Level 4. He has helped to motivate and inspire his learners who seek to emulate his journey and experience this for themselves.

Rob says,

“I have a strong passion to equip, train and inspire youth workers to be excellent and provide high quality support to young people. My passion for youth work and for learners to be the best they can be, sees my focus investing in individuals and groups, developing their skills, knowledge and awareness of being professional and sensitive to the environment in which they operate. I am keen to make the subject accessible and real, and because of my wide experience, offer many real life scenarios and practical ways that the learning be applied or incorporated into their own context or practice.”

His colleague says,

“Rob’s story has ‘shaped’ him and he is able to identify with learners. He knows that each learner is not a number, but someone with a story, a life, a journey of their own.”

The year 2020/21 could have meant no youth work support worker training, but it is going on across Wales, with over 200 learners and 15 tutors, thanks to the innovation that Rob has shown in adapting resources for online delivery. 

Everyone at Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales wishes you luck for the Awards!
