Bob McDougall

About:

I've been an active youth worker since 2003 with a passion for inclusion. I have worked with some genuinely incredible young people in that time who have taught me a lot.
I've been an trainer since 2008 and I have developed an energetic, enthusiatic and engaging style, with genuine motivation to create the best learning environment to suit everybody.
I'm spurred on in my work by the notion of social justice and believe we are all the little bricks helping to fill the cracks in society :o)

Bob McDougall has 5 references for past work as a trainer.

Current occupation

Intercultural Trainer / Project Manager / Youth Worker

Work experience

I have been training and working in formal and non-formal education for 14 years. For the past 9 years I have been responsible for delivering all the volunteer training within the European Voluntary Service in England and the rest of the UK. My background is in working with inclusion groups, specifically young people with learning disabilities and those with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties and I have prepared hundreds of young people with high support needs to take on an international experience. More recently I have been training professionals on effective inclusion methods. I work from the United Kingdom but will travel anywhere in the world.

Educational pathway

I have a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education, specialising in the Lifelong Learning sector.
I gained a bachelor's degree in Popular Music before working in education and music is, and will always be a prominent passion.
