Our team

Asha currently employs 9 members of full and part time staff and we also employ a number of experienced and qualified sessional tutors who delivery a variety of accredited and non-accredited course and activities at the Centre. It is Board policy that all staff should be women and all should be appropriately qualified for the work they undertake.

Asha has a diverse, experienced and well trained and professionally qualified staff group comprising qualified probation officers, approved social worker and Managers. In some instances staff have dual qualifications. For example, support coordinators are qualified both as social workers (or equivalent) and in adult teaching, enabling them to lead groups with an educational aim, but also able to offer support where there are disclosure of issues requiring a skilled social work response.

All support co-ordinators delivering groups and courses are registered with Institute for Learning and are PTTLS level 4 trained.
