I manage Brentwood Academy day-to-day, undertaking a range of administrative tasks in addition to timetabling, developing new topics, courses and teaching materials. I also teach a range of qualification types and levels, planning and preparing lessons and assessing students’ work and giving additional support. I love helping students with all aspects of their studies and it is great to see so many go on to achieve their qualification and a successful career in this exciting industry.

Beauty Therapist

I previously worked in a salon for five years and taught at the London College of Beauty Therapy, before I joined Brentwood Academy. I now teach Level 2 and 3 classes part-time and conduct beauty treatments for my own clients. I love showing students how to do beauty treatments in the correct way and teaching a new generation of health and beauty therapists.

Ever since I trained at the Brentwood academy I’ve always wanted to work here, over the years I kept in touch with Fiona and we always talked about me doing my PTTLS (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector). The opportunity arose in 2014 for me to study for my PTTLS Training at Brentwood Academy. I worked voluntary here as soon as I finished my course. I was mentored by Fiona and soon offered a position Tutoring. Seeing all the students become great therapists and getting to play with products all day long is what I most love about my job.
