Post Graduate Certificate in Marketing

I am a highly qualified and experienced lecturer and marketing professional, with an 11 year teaching history in addition to many years’ experience in a variety of marketing and business roles, predominantly in service sector industries.

After studying Business Studies at the University of Central Lancashire, I went on to specialise in Marketing, via my studies with the CIM. I hold the CIM’s Diploma in Marketing, and went on further to study at Post Graduate level (at Sheffield Hallam University) where I achieved their Post Graduate Certificate in Marketing.

These qualifications were the basis of a successful career in a variety of Marketing roles, having worked for Building Societies, Training Providers, as well as many years lecturing experience with colleges throughout the Yorkshire area. I have taught a variety of courses including CIM courses, HND/C Business Studies, Foundation Degree Marketing, as well as marketing modules on the Institute of Export’s Diploma in International Trade.

I am a dedicated teacher, and always enjoy delivering lectures, tutorials and seminars to groups of students.

I live in rural North Yorkshire, where I enjoy spending time with my 3 children, as well as finding time to enjoy my hobbies which include gardening, visiting local place of interest, and playing hockey for Harrogate Hockey Club.
