Other information

Corinne is a current NEBDN examiner for the National Diploma

She also has an interest in behaviour management and change, and finds her recent training in NLP (neurolinguistic programming) techniques useful in the class setting

Corinne says: “Delivering training is not just about teaching! Part of the tutor role is to identify where a change in attitude or thought processes can lead to improved performance. This may be a student who, perhaps based on their past experiences, believes they ‘can’t’ learn easily or are ‘too nervous’ to pass an exam.

It is very satisfying to see our students achieve success – not just by passing the exam but throughout the year as they develop in professional and personal aspects.”
