Jo Ridley


Higher Education Liaison Officer

Day-to-day I work with young people in Berkshire by delivering events in school and co-ordinating events off site which support students to make the most of their future. The schools I work with are:  Blessed Hugh Farringdon Catholic School, Oakbank, The Bulmershe School, Reading Girls’ School and Trinity School.

More about me:

I’m currently completing a doctorate, exploring concepts of self-efficacy within disadvantaged young people.  When I’m not doing that I’m running, at the moment training for London and Berlin marathons.  I’m also a trustee for the Recovery Tree Charity in Swindon, which runs a number of projects supporting people with mental health difficulties.
