"A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way."
My name is Amanda McInnes, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead the SPCC DALE Young Parents Newcastle team.
I am married with three adult daughters, and love spending time with my family.
I have many years of experience as an English teacher, teaching at various schools.
I have worked at SPCC Young Parents at Newcastle since 2005, firstly as a Teacher, and now in the role of Head of Campus. Throughout that time, I have seen many changes, and have worked with a great many amazing young people as they continue their Education through pregnancy and parenthood.
In 2018, I completed a Master of Leadership and Management in Education. I love to learn and to continue to develop my professional skills. I am particularly interested in curriculum development, and in creative ways of engaging young people with their learning. I believe that the educational needs of young parents are unique, and that the curriculum should be accessible to all.
At SPCC Young parents, you will find an experience that is different to anything that you may have experienced in a mainstream school setting. We have an amazing staff, and a caring and welcoming environment.
If you are interested in coming to have a look, we would love to meet you.
