Sally Ward

I started working at Conway Centres: Anglesey in 2001 and I love it! Every day I work with a fabulous team and interesting students, teaching outdoor activities that I’m passionate about; in an environment I love and respect.  When I was eleven I went to France with school, we camped in little tents, ate around a campfire in the evening, climbed, abseiled and kayaked during the day. The weather was bad at times, but it didn’t matter, I knew then that this is what I would do in the future. My first job was a trainee position at the Welsh National Watersports Centre where I gained my first outdoor qualification as a Dinghy Instructor, I am now a Senior Sailing Instructor. I have worked hard and have enjoyed gaining qualifications such as Summer Mountain Leader, SPA, Level 2 Canoe Coach & 4* Leadership Award and Trail Cycle Leader. I am always looking forward to the next challenge. I really believe that outdoor activities are a great vehicle for educating students outside of the classroom.  I am an Accredited Practitioner for the Institute of Outdoor Learning and I have an Honours Degree in Adventure Education and Outdoor Facilitation. I recently took a sabbatical from centre life to train as a Primary School teacher, I am now a fully qualified teacher and found the experience not only fulfilling but highly beneficial to my work at the Conway Centres: Anglesey. I can now fully appreciate how the children learn in the classroom and I can use my new teaching skills to improve my delivery of lessons across a range of activities. In my free time I will be found camping, surfing, mountain biking and taking my own children on adventures. I am always looking forward to the next adventure and I love sharing my stories and experiences with others.
