A Rhondda Cynon Taf youth worker has won the first-ever Youth Work In Schools Award at the annual Professional Teaching Awards Cymru.
Amy Bolderson, of Pontypridd High School, collected the award during a ceremony held in Flintshire, North Wales, on Sunday May 19.
The Youth Work in Schools Award is presented to an individual whose youth work demonstrates an exceptional impact on the lives of the young people they work with on a daily basis.
Amy Bolderson is a Youth Engagement Officer for the Council’s Youth Service, based at Pontypridd High School and everyone at the school is delighted with her win, yet another accolade for her sterling youth work.
At the Council’s Youth Engagement and Participation Service’s annual celebration event in March 2018, Amy Bolderson was crowned Youth Worker of the Year.
Councillor Christina Leyshon, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: “I am delighted that Amy has once again been recognised for her youth work in Rhondda Cynon Taf, this time at the prestigious annual Professional Teaching Awards Cymru.
“Amy continues to contribute so much to the local community and is highly respected among her peers and the young people that she works with in striving to make a real and positive difference to their lives.
“We have such a wealth of young talent in our County Borough, and Amy is one of our many youth workers who are recognising and nurturing that talent.”
