About the tutor
Anne Tudor-Kerr currently works for Learn Devon mainly in the northern area. Prior to this she worked for the North Devon Pathfinder Trust and before that as a classroom teacher with Avon and Somerset Council.
Anne has a Bachelor of Education with Honours from the University of the West of England. Anne has worked for many youth organisations including The Air Training Corps, Girls Brigade, Brownies, and Guides. Since moving to Devon eight years ago she has concentrated on the learning requirements of adults particularly those requiring support into employment.
“I love teaching adults although, they are quite different from young people in their requirements, the challenges are still very rewarding. To watch the progression of an adult with no knowledge to a confident user of a computer who finds employment is the best reward there is”.
