Maria is our approachable and supportive Deputy Head of Education. Her days are filled with teaching, the management of students and staff, and liaising with parents, carers and other professionals.
Before joining us in 2013, Maria was an acute psychiatric nursing assistant for 15 years and the manager of an NVQ assessment centre. She says the best thing about working for CCL is meeting the students and supporting them to develop their independence.
Maria has a Certificate in Education and a Postgraduate Certificate in Integrated Children and Young People Practice. She is also a First Aid at Work assessor and internal verifier.
