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.
John started his journey back in 2014 by enrolling on the ITEC Sports Massage Therapy course in Portobello Institute. After graduating from this course, he took the next step and enrolled on the B.Sc. Sports Therapy degree course. He graduated in 2018 with his degree from London Metropolitan University. Since then, he has worked with the Meath Inter-County Team, Enduro World Series, IronMan 70.3, AMC Network and numerous other teams and clubs. In less than two years he has gained more experience and opportunities than he could ever have imagined.
As a tutor John wants to create an environment where students can express themselves while learning and growing as people and therapists. He believes in using the classroom, gym and clinic to build a greater understanding of the foundations of Sports Therapy. Then it is at events were students get to put their theory and practical skills into practice.
