A FORMER member of teaching staff at Coleg Ceredigion will appear before a disciplinary committee this week accused of “inappropriate” communications with students.
The college employee, Nancy Jenkins, who no longer works at the college, will face allegations of ‘unacceptable professional conduct’ when she attends an Education Workforce Council fitness to practice committee in the Village St David’s Hotel, Ewloe, Flintshire, on Thursday and Friday this week.
Ms Jenkins is accused of engaging in inappropriate communication and using inappropriate language with learners, in person and via the mobile phone messaging service WhatsApp, between 2014 and 2016.
In the communications, Ms Jenkins is accused of using words to the effect of: “give me some f*****g energy”; “it’s so annoying that you’re so quiet; project your voice”; “Fred the Shred! What the f**k!”; and “my partner is refusing to come and see this after what I have told him about the way you treat me. He says he doesn’t feel as though he will be able to control his thoughts when watching you”.
