Karen Stracey

I started at Lnk in June 2017 as a case worker, working with young people as part of an aspire higher programme, the purpose of the program being to ensure young people have post-16 provisions, a college place, an apprenticeship or employment.

My previous background was nine years working in a primary school as a higher-level teaching assistant supporting in all areas of the national curriculum. I wanted to work with LNK as I love working with children/young people and felt this would be a new challenge for me, and an exciting opportunity which of course is very rewarding.
