My name is Kath Jones and I am the Registered Manager of Weston House and the Additional Learning Needs Support Manager at Bridgend College.
I have worked at the College for over 25 years specialising in the support, care and education of younger people with disabilities.
Previously my roles within the organisation have been as a Teacher within the Department Special Education, Inclusive Learning Manager and then Head of Special Education. My experience over these many years with many differing areas of individual need has helped to ensure that I have a clear understanding of what the young people who come to Weston House need from the provision.
Along with the excellent staff team I lead here, we strive for the highest standards of person centred care and support for the learners at Weston House and we also facilitate new experiences and fun activities in a safe and nurturing environment for them.
Our aim is to help each learner, regardless of their disability, make the most of the academic and social development opportunities offered here on their transition to adulthood. Watching each learner become more independent and overcome their individual challenges on their journey to achievement, fulfilment and a brighter future makes this a rich and rewarding vocation.
All learners leave us as more confident, aspirational and contributing young people who because they have been listened to, valued and given a voice, know their worth and what they want in the future be it to live more independently, further study, seek employment or all of these things.
At Weston House we live the ethos of helping our learners to “be all that we can be”.
