Nicola managed and owned her own catering service for children aged between 6 months to 12 years for almost 14 years. This is where her keen interest in the areas of adult and child education stemmed from. Nicola also has an interest in inclusion, giving an understanding and a broader perspective of how individuals learn. This, coupled with her natural leadership traits and desire to learn and teach allowed Nicola to begin tutoring in the areas of Special Needs Assisting and Childcare. Nicola has a long list of qualifications, including BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies and Professional Practice Mentoring for Early Childhood Practice.
