Meet the training team!


Meet the team:

Kate Richardson: I have been training at Community Action since 2012 supporting people into volunteering and delivering Volunteer Works training. I support voluntary and community organisations to manage volunteers and implement policies and procedures. I deliver Volunteer Coordinators' forums for volunteer managers in Derby to offer support, training and the opportunity to network.  I recruit volunteers for Community Managed Libraries and Derby Homes residents as well as running a Volunteer Centre and offer full training to enable volunteers to carry out their roles.  I have Level 3 Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector.

Nick Pritchard: I’ve been delivering training for over 20 years,  the last 3 of which have been at Community Action, supporting charities and voluntary organisations in the Derby area, covering subjects including equality and diversity, fundraising, running effective meetings and taking minutes. I have a Level 3 qualification in Education and Training and I like to make training enjoyable as well as informative.

Jayne Williams: I am the Communications Coordinator at Community Action and deliver Social Media sessions to voluntary and community organisations and 1:1 surgeries for people who need more in-depth sessions. I deliver Dementia Friends Awareness sessions to organisations in my role as a Dementia Friends Champion and I have also trained and coached people in dance fitness but not at Community Action! I have a Level 3 Award in Education and Training and I am currently studying for a BA (Hons) in Sociology with the Open University .

Nina Powe: I went into secondary teaching after studying for a Bachelor of Arts as a mature student, graduating in 2000. Instead of a PGCE, I learned ‘on the job’ as an unqualified teacher in a variety of schools around Derbyshire and gained Qualified Teacher Status by assessment route only through the University of Gloucester. Now I mentor on the Journey 2 Employment programme supporting mixed ability participants with individuals’ training needs. Additionally I support Derby Homes residents with developing their computer skills. It’s always great to see people engage and ‘get it’ and it’s always rewarding making a difference for people.
