Cathy Cartwright

Cathy joined Action Tutoring in August 2020 as Programme Coordinator for Chester.

Cathy is responsible for overseeing a caseload of partner schools in Chester, liaising and working closely with the schools and pupils as well as managing our pool of volunteer tutors.

Whilst studying for her degree in English Language and Linguistics, Cathy volunteered in a local primary school, supporting children with their English and maths. Cathy then went on to complete her teacher training at Bath Spa University in 2017. After graduating, Cathy worked in a further education college on a social mobility programme to raise aspirations and support young people from underrepresented groups to access higher education.

After spending seven years studying and working in Bristol, Bath and Wiltshire, Cathy has recently moved back to the north west, where she grew up. Cathy is passionate about supporting young people in her community to overcome barriers and realise their full potential.
