I returned to full-time education in 1997 as a mature student attending Cricklade College, Andover on an access course. After gaining the necessary entrance qualifications I was accepted onto a BA Hons course in Textiles for fashion at Portsmouth University. This 3-year course saw me study Printing, Knitting, Weaving (Specialised in 2nd & 3rd Years), Business Studies, Italian and Fashion Design. I graduated in 2001 with 1st Class Honours and was given an award for my constructed textiles.
I then attended Bath Spa University on a 2 year Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) for Primary & Secondary teaching. This gained me all the necessary skills to teach all areas of Design & Technology. After gaining Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) I worked in a local secondary school until summer 2015.
I am available to assist on a regular, or ad hoc basis, with lesson times mutually convenient to my customers.
I welcome all standards of a student, from beginner to the more experienced wanting to broaden their skills. I have over 12 years of teaching experience and am happy to tailor lessons around what customers would like to learn or gain further knowledge and skills off.
I am Enhanced DBS checked so younger customers are welcome.
