Maddy Ford

Link Worker

William Morris Sixth Form College

Maddy studied Civil Engineering at the University of Leeds and went on to work as an engineer on a number of large construction projects in the UK. After deciding that people were more interesting than pipes, Maddy volunteered for 6 months at IPODERAC, a home for boys aged 4-14 in Mexico.

On her return to the UK, Maddy completed Year Here, a post graduate course in social enterprise, which is where her choice to pursue a career working with young people was solidified.
