Alun Owen

Director of Curriculum - Young People

Following an initial career firstly in the Civil Service and then in Sales and Marketing, I retrained to gain a Cert Ed for Post 16 education and commenced teaching at both Hugh Baird College and Southport College. Being then seduced by the idea of working overseas, I emigrated to run my own business for 4 years. On returning to the UK, I re-commenced my teaching career as a part-time lecturer at Hugh Baird and Warrington Collegiate in Leisure and Tourism, achieving a permanent post at Hugh Baird a year later. This was followed by the role of pastoral Senior Tutor responsible for Level 1 and 2 programmes and I then gained the position of Inclusive Learning Coordinator in 2001.

Having gained the post of Director of Young People Alun is looking forward to building on his previous roles at the College by developing and implementing the new and exciting challenges of full time enrolments for 14 year olds and the approval of Hugh Baird as academy sponsor.
