About the Presenter:

John Wills has worked in the voluntary sector for the past seven years. He has a background in the development and delivery of education programmes in secondary schools. As Education Development Executive with Barnardos, John is responsible for the delivery and continued updating of Barnardos school’s programmes.


Recently, John Wills (Education Development Officer) from Barnardos made a presentation to a group of Transition Year students on how Barnardos support children. The focus was on poverty and disadvantage and the group was fully engaged throughout. From their questions at the end it was clear that the students appreciated how children need support to break out of the cycle and reach their potential. I would strongly recommend this presentation to other schools
