Jenny became involved with UpRising as a Leadership Programme participant in October 2015, before taking on the role of Manchester Programme Co-ordinator in January 2016 and Programme alumna in June of the same year.
A proud Cumbrian, Jenny moved down to Manchester after art college in 2011 in search of an Apprenticeship and has completed two in Business & Administration and Marketing in the education and skills sector. She has also taken on various adult learning support roles alongside.
Jenny is passionate about raising aspirations and enabling accessible career routes for young people from all socioeconomic backgrounds. She has worked on a range of projects to increase awareness and build capacity of Apprenticeships and Traineeships in the region and has been a Greater Manchester Apprenticeship Ambassador since 2013.
Self-taught Photoshop geek, Jenny still enjoys her arty pursuits and does the odd bit of freelance graphic design in her spare time.
