I’m Course Tutor in Health and Social Care.
Thanks to my background working in healthcare, I’m pleased to bring you a Health and Social Care curriculum that will give you the skills you need to thrive in your career.
I was a general nurse and midwife for 15 years, so I know how important it is to gain a solid understanding of Health and Social Care.
The course is designed to give you all the essential technical ability and foundational medical understanding you need to progress to further study, or find a role in the health sector.

I’m a Motor Vehicle Studies Lecturer.
My professional life has been spent repairing, diagnosing and maintaining vehicles of all kinds — from motorbikes to motorhomes — and training other people to do the same.
I worked at Honda as a Senior Technician and Diagnostic Specialist. Like my colleagues, I bring real life experience to the role, making sure everything you learn is relevant and up-to-date, to help you progress in your career.
I’ve been teaching for eight years, covering subjects like Engineering, Electronics, Manufacturing and Mechanics. When I’m not tinkering with engines and exhausts, you’ll find me listening to music and spending time with my family.

I’m a Transition Learning Lecturer.
I’m passionate about helping people to see their potential and make it a reality.
I worked in the council for 7 years, training young people to develop their abilities and open up employment opportunities. I’ve also travelled around UK schools giving motivational and employability workshops. I love finding creative ways to teach and learn.
I specialise in working with students with special learning difficulties and disabilities, and also teach a number of subjects.

I’m Curriculum Team Leader in Hairdressing.
I oversee the college’s hairdressing courses, making sure that you get top-class training from the classroom to the salon.
I’m a qualified hairdresser too, and have worked in salons for over 25 years, managing and training staff. I’m proud to have achieved a Master Colour Award from Wella Professionals.
I bring my salon experience to the course — along with other tutors, who are all experienced practitioners — giving you all you need to embark on a career in hairdressing.

Health & Social Care: Ashley’s now one step closer to achieving her dream
After two years of studying for her A Levels, Ashley decided to join Mid Cheshire College to achieve her goal of becoming a Mental Health nurse.
While she studied she also worked part time in a care setting, to further her skills and to aid linking theory with practice.
Ashley’s now one step closer to achieving her dream by accepting a place on the Mental Health nursing course at the University of Chester.
“I really enjoyed my time at Mid Cheshire College, the tutors were great and the facilities are excellent. The placements were also very good as they give you a big insight into the world of work.”
In a sector traditionally dominated by men, Katey was the only female on her course and very determined to change people’s perceptions of women in engineering.
As a result of her determination and strong skill set, she secured an apprenticeship at a specialist engineering corporation, becoming the company’s first female engineer.
Katey has now returned to Mid Cheshire College to study for her HND.
“Mid Cheshire College has given me the relevant skills for my apprenticeship and really prepared me for the world of work.”
Childcare: Her enthusiasm and knowledge has shone through
Working with children comes naturally to Vicky, a skill she showed on every placement she undertook while on the Level 3 Children’s Care, Learning and Development course.
Her enthusiasm and knowledge for childcare has shone through to everyone she has encountered, resulting in her receiving a full time job offer before she’d even completed the course.
Vicky plans to gain experience in her new job before embarking on a Play Therapy degree.Learn more
