Below are some of the websites that I have been involved in.
I am a co-organiser of CodeUp Chester a free learner led monthly mentoring programme for adults learning to code and programme.
I volunteered my web design skills to the Charity Save The Family for their Gateways Project at Plas Bellin Hall.
I worked with young people who have been touched by homelessness, helping them design and build a website for the project using the CMS Weebly.
My role was to consult the group and oversee the websites development, where the design, layout, content and decisions where ultimately the young peoples.
Gateways was a collaborative project involving research in to the history of Plas Bellin Hall, oral history training and interviewing, working with a storyteller to create a fictional story based on the history research and the young peoples own stories as well as working with the artist Stephen Broadbent to create a sculptural trail based on the story.
The websites brief was to encompass all aspects of the project including the History Timeline of Plas Bellin Hall, Recorded Oral History Interviews, Stories and Artist Sculptures.
I am responsible for making regular updates to the Vanuatus Little Stars Summer School (VLSSS) website.
VLSSS was founded by my brother, Oxford Maths Graduate, James Roberts. James flew out to Vanuatu – which is located between Australia and Fiji – at the start of 2011 to teach maths, physics and history to students on Pentecost, one of the countrys 83 islands.
After a year of teaching he wasn’t ready to return to the UK and decided to set up the summer school providing promising students in Vanuatu the skills they need to become dynamic leaders of the country in the future.
In January 2013 the first summer school was successfully completed by thirty students from four primary schools the south of Pentecost Island. VLSSS has been expanding ever since and in January 2015 there will be a total of sixty students attending from twenty seven primary schools.
Vanuatu is a developing nation, having only gained independence in 1980. It is a country trying to find its own way and is in need of strong leaders to do this. VLSSS aims to inspire a generation of successful students to become those leaders that can help the country get up on its two feet helping the generations to come.
