Catriona Smith

Catriona Smith

Programme Executive

Catriona (aka Cat) has a passion for learning and finding new ways of engaging the young people she works with on the Pathways Programme. As a trained Careers Professional Catriona uses her 23 years of experience to showcase the potential that the young people have to themselves and others. Confidence is key and encouraging young people to have the confidence to 'learn by doing' is her mantra. Equality of opportunity is the aim of the programme, by highlighting that everything is 'learnable' and opening up new horizons for the learners who come along to the Rouken Glen Centre. Whether it is setting up a mini-enterprise, participating in landscaping projects or creating something new from upcycled material, Cat enjoys it all and encourages the young people to seize each opportunity available to help them move into their 'new reality'.

Unlike her nickname Cat prefers dogs and you will find her walking for hours with her four legged companion Bailey in as many parks and hills as possible.
