Kirsty previously worked as a childminder and has co-owned a children’s day nursery for the last 15 years.

“I started teaching at Leeds City College in 2012 and I am now working as one of the programme managers, I love it! I enjoy working as part of the School of Childhood and Education and find it rewarding getting to know my students, supporting them through their time at college, and seeing them progress and gain their qualifications with us.”
