Our academic team along with programme managers and teaching staff are the heart of the college who inspire and support our students on a daily basis and throughout their educational journey with us. To ensure full relevant support for every learner we have a programme manager in place for every department. All with significant experience within their sector we are delighted to show just some of our dedicated team.
Early Years Tutor
Karen Cremins has Diploma in Montessori and a Degree in Early Childhood studies. She studied for both of these qualifications at Portobello Institute and is the co-owner of a Montessori Preschool in Lucan with her mother, the school has been open since 2009.
She works as a part-time tutor for the Fetac Level 6 in Early Years in Portobello and also tutors for the Level 7 Degree in Early Years Studies.
Karen feels that because she completed her Degree with Portobello / London Metropolitan University, that as a tutor, she can really relate to the students that she supports, having been through the same process as they are going through.
