Meet Our Team
STN is a user-led and nurturing community founded by a group of women of all ages and from many diverse cultures and over 2000 service users per year benefited from our services and courses.
Our Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall control and strategic direction of STN. They meet regularly to discuss, decide and review our strategies and policies and receive reports and updates from Executive Directors.
Our trustees work for STN voluntarily to make sure we’re doing all we can to reach and improve the lives of people affected by disadvantages. STN was founded in 2011 and is run by a group of qualified professional teachers and advisors with a combined 60 years of experience in teaching, skills assessment, and human resource management.
The teachers, advisors, advocates, and other staff employed at STN are highly qualified with an array of teaching, advice, advocacy, and experience to cater for the different individual’s needs by tailoring the services, training in relation to their needs, and aspirations.
Our staff and members speak different languages such as Arabic, Urdu, Banali, Turkish, Somali, Kurdish, French, Spanish, and different African Languages.
Around 20 volunteers (occasional and regular) are involved in supporting the organisation’s activities. Staff and volunteers take responsibility for day-to-day activities.
