Welcome Jan – our new PH Trainer

My name is Jan Hobday and I have taken over the role as trainer with in Penpergwm House. I have over 40 years of working and teaching within the Care sector from Childcare to Health and Social Care from entry level to L5. I am a qualified teacher/trainer but started out my professional life as a nurse! I also have my assessor and internal verifier awards, along with lots of other professional and complimentary therapies qualifications. Four years ago I completed my MA in Education, no mean feat when you have family and a job!.
I have always believed in keeping up to date with the ever changing care world so therefore continuing professional development is key however, I also live in the real world and know that training can be something that some people shy away from. I am here to help, support and guide you, so please feel free to contact me or pop down and see me to have a chat about your training needs.
I moved from Essex (I know, I am exactly like TOWIE!!!!) 15 years ago to Pontypool and have two children and a dog but this area is familiar to me as my mother was born just down the road, so I feel like I am at home.
