About Me

Hello. I am Penny Clarke and I have been working as a note-taker since 2004.

I work widely in the community and I also work for several universities and colleges. I will consider any relevant assignment in any location. I am a member of the Association of Notetaking Professionals (ANP).

I love the work I do – it is so varied and interesting – and I do meet some lovely people. What more could I want?

Over the years I have added to my qualifications; I like to keep up to date. I also contribute to the note-taking profession by being an active member of the Association of Notetaking Professionals.

I am currently training to become a qualified Teacher of Lipreading to Adults.

I am a trustee of a local Sandwell Deaf Community Association.
