Meet the Team
At Portobello Institute we share a common commitment to quality, a structured approach to learning and a focus on industry links as well as care for the individual learners.
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
Nora Sweetnam has been working in Early Years Education for more than 20 years, prior to that she taught English as a second language and more recently has been tutoring part-time in Montessori Education and at degree level in Early Childhood Studies.
Education and learning are her passions and believes her role is to impart a love of learning to all of her students. She is interested in language teaching and learning and second language acquisition particularly in light of the current multilingual composition of Irish society.
