About Andy Heaton
My journey began as far back as 2005, initially helping out voluntarily in junior football coaching sessions. In a short space of time, I progressed onto coaching and junior management, which eventually led on to a BSc(Hons) degree in Sports Coaching at the University of Huddersfield.
During these early years, I developed a real passion for supporting and educating young people, enhanced further by undertaking various roles across the education sector, including safeguarding, academic progress, mental health, wellbeing, online safety and other pastoral areas.
I have been fortunate to undertake training in many areas, to supplement the knowledge and experience gained over this time and personal development is something I am keen on in order to enhance the support I can give back to the young people I work with.
As a parent myself, I know only too well how we want the best for our children. It is with that in mind that I share with you a genuine compassion and desire to aim for positive outcomes for your child.
I truly believe that everyone is unique and, by working in a person-centered way, your child is put at the heart of the work undertaken with them – it simply must be valuable, beneficial and aim to make a positive impact. In this respect, I enjoy developing working relationships and value the difference this can make in a supporting role.
With over a decade’s experience of coaching, school-based and primary to secondary transition experience, Headway aims to draw on this knowledge, the qualifications and experience gained to offer a fully comprehensive, personable and bespoke mental health, wellbeing and education service to support children, young people, parents and schools alike.
