Introducing Amy

Hello, my name is Amy McCafferty and I am excited to be getting the chance to gain volunteer experience with Scottish Orienteering as part of my degree programme at Stirling University. I am in my fourth year studying BA (Hons) Sports Studies and have taken the opportunity to do a workplace placement focusing on Safeguarding in sport. I am looking forward to learning and working with Scottish Orienteering.

I will be working alongside the staff team to help coordinate the upcoming Child Wellbeing and Protection in Sport courses taking place over the next 2 months. Some of you may receive an email from me in coming weeks to confirm your course date so don’t be surprised if a Stirling University email address lands in your inbox.
