Every Learner is Different | Maria’s Story
In Maria’s free time, she loves to go for coffee and socialise with friends. She loves walking but is sometimes restricted due to aches and pains.
Life before Brooks and Kirk
Maria used to be a healthcare assistant until 2010. Maria now works in the beauty industry, where she uses massage to help people with cancer. Maria was thinking about tutoring, as she knew she could do it in other industries, so she knew it was a good time to start the Education and Training course.
Finding Brooks and Kirk
Maria wanted to up her skills and knowledge and thought taking the Award in Education and Training would be a great fit for her. At 58, she still wanted to continue with her education. She found Brooks and Kirk through a recommendation from a friend of her husband. She also spoke to someone on her own course who was with us at the time.
“With English being my second language, kept asking for support and brooks and kirk were really supportive and helped me get through the course. There was support all the time which I really liked. It was a really good course. It makes you understand teaching. But now I have more understanding of the prep. You understand what goes with being the teacher and student.”
Life after the Assessor Course
In the future, Maria will be using the Award in Education and Training to further her skills within the beauty and holistic industry.
“Take what’s out there, there is always something you can do to combine work and teaching. I would recommend a teaching assistant to complete this course.”
