Description

Renowned educator and CEO of the Woodland Academy Trust, Dan Morrow, manages over 250 people across four schools in England. Alison Golding is a volunteer at one of the schools under Dan’s leadership.



In this episode we listen in as the pair meet up at the primary school where Alison volunteers, for a revealing discussion about the obstacles to employment that motherhood, gender and mental health problems can present, as well as how both Alison and Dan were able to overcome their personal barriers through the love of their jobs in the education sector.



Throughout this series, presented by Yassmin Abdel-Magied, you’ll hear six inspiring, intimate and frank conversations between those who hold power in sought-after industries and the people struggling to find their way due to a variety of barriers that life throws up.



You can read and watch more from our Breaking Barriers series on virgin.com, including advice from Digital Mums on how to beat the career break penalty and a video interview with Yassmin.
