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.
Jean has been working in business for almost 20 years, being self-employed for nearly 10 having owned and managed a well-known French Restaurant in Dublin 2 with her husband.
Opening a business in 2007, at the tail end of the Celtic Tiger meant invaluable in learning the importance of good business management while dealing with the many challenges of a constantly changing business environment.
Jean recently returned to education following the sale of the business in 2016 and she has always wanted to teach. Jean has a genuine love of teaching and tutoring at Portobello Institute has opened up a whole new world of teaching to her. Classes are engaging, where students are encouraged to share their life experiences through class discussion, assignments and projects.
