Teaching for the Future
"Teenage Training & Development Programme"

Under the instigation of Stuart Mortimer with the support and backing of The Association of Woodturners of Great Britain and the Worshipful Company of Turners the first national weekend of the ‘Teenage Training & Development Programme’ was held at the home of Stuart & Linda Mortimer in Grateley Hampshire in August 2006. Ten young people (9 boys and 1 girl) aged 14-18 years attended with 5 tutors,
Stuart Mortimer, Gary Rance, Tony Witham, Reg Hawthorne and Ron Caddy.

The cost and equipment was financed by the Association, Company and tool manufacturers.
My contribution to the weekends are to discuss and instruct Pen Making.

It proved a very beneficial training weekend with new knowledge and friendships being gained.

Building on the continued success of each year. The Youth Training weekend in Hampshire for 2013 will be held during the last weekend in August.

 Again, building on the success of the 2006 event other regional Youth Training events are held across the country.

I am now the National Co-ordinator of Youth Training for the AWGB.
