Course Leader profile
I have spent over 30 years of my life working in care. Starting (in the 80s), as a Care Assistant, then working as a Nurse at the Royal Halifax Infirmary and then as a Manager in Health and Social Care. I have enjoyed many years nursing both adults and children and loved every minute of it. Along the way I have completed many courses including Levels 4 and 5 in Health and Social Care, Cert Ed, The L4 Assessors award and I am currently studying Level 2 British Sign Language. I have been here at the college for nearly 10 years now and my passion for Health and Social Care is as strong today as it was back in the 1980s. I believe that everyone has the ability to shine in that subject that interests and motivates the most, and it is our job to inspire and guide our learners to their goals.
