What made you decide to become a Tutor with Valkyrie?
I had worked in the food manufacturing industry for 8 years but was needing a new challenge. I wanted to stay within manufacturing because it is an area I know so well, but I also wanted to diverse and become more involved in the support network required for manufacturing to run efficiently. I had also loved the learning and teaching element that had been a strong aspect of my previous role and found I was able to engage with all kinds of different learners. When I saw the opening to join Valkyrie which allowed me to use my lengthy experience and combine my enthusiasm for passing on knowledge, I had to jump at the opportunity.
