Jo Weeks

I started working at St. John’s in 2004 as a Learning Support Worker with remit for a young person with an acquired brain injury. I studied mechanical and production engineering at Northbrook College so this was a complete change of career for me.

I have had various roles during my time here. Firstly, as a Learning Support Worker, then as College Coordinator, supporting our young people access mainstream colleges in the local community. I am now Transition Coordinator, working with our young people and their families, offering advice and guidance to move them into suitable services post St. John’s. I also work as part of the admissions team, working with potential learners and their families on their entry into St. John’s.

During my time at St. John’s, I have studied Information Advice and Guidance Level 4 Qualification.

I love the fact St. John’s offers young people bespoke learning programme. They are highly supported by an amazing and highly skilled staff team across education and residential care. Our learners have opportunities to develop skills in all areas. They have fun whilst learning and it’s great to watch them grow in independence and confidence. It’s a pleasure to be able to work here and I feel honoured to have met such amazing and diverse young people.
