Instructor(s)

Director of training at Phoenix Louise Phoenix Searles

I’ve been involved with education & training since 1993 as a college lecturer, examiner & lead verifier with City & Guilds. Since 2001, I have been fortunate enough to help many people gain a ‘Career after Children’ creating flexible learning plans incorporating the units they would like to study. My main focus is on enhancing the quality of the learner’s journey, whilst meeting the industry’s needs and expectations to create a quality provision. Therapy Learning Resources is an extension of the provision which I first developed to help our adult learners embrace the complexities of gaining regulated qualifications whilst not compromising the support to their family.

From my experience, I am really interested in this course because it’s useful in the practical and personal life. It’s beneficial as all people men and women are interested in their appearance at any age. I found the learning resources very informative and helpful because they include slides and videos which make the information clearer and you can open them from a phone or a laptop. I used to open it on my laptop and the resources worked perfectly on it. I really recommend this resources because it can make a big difference in your studying and understanding.
