Jan Lear

Jan has specialised in working with young people for more than thirty years. The ‘Wheels Project’ was started in 1999 with a group of thirty 14-16 year old young men. This programme was the catalyst that later formulated the idea to create Black Country Wheels.
“I enjoy a challenge, working in Alternative Education gives me that! I particularly enjoy and gain great satisfaction in helping young people to realise their own potential and to watch them succeed in education, moving on in their lives to where they want to be.”
In her spare time, Jan enjoys gardening and in particular growing her own food. Jan’s love of motor sport and walking is a well known fact.
Jan has a particular passion for environmental issues.
