“It changed the direction of my life” – Jacqui Wilkins, VI Creative

by | Jul 17, 2020 | News, Volunteer Story

Jacqui Wilkins, MD of Visual Identity Creative Ltd, has been lead designer for the new ‘Find Your Job!’ card games that Worktree has been developing for schools (also available in an online version) during lockdown. “It’s been a pleasure working with Worktree to develop this exciting new resource,” says Jacqui.  “Education is my thing.  I had a 1970s comprehensive education in Bletchley and I was lucky.  A teacher inspired me to go to university and it changed the direction of my life.  It could have gone a very different way.  I’m passionate about doing what I can to help young people get the same opportunities I’ve had.”
