Manager of Study Programmes
Work Placement Coordinator — Art, Fashion, Hair and Beauty (Adams)
I am Cheryl Young and I joined Nottingham College in October 2022 as Work Placement Coordinator. I am based in Adams Building, supporting Hair & Beauty, Art & Design and Fashion Students with work placements and employability opportunities. I enjoy developing partnerships with employers to support and grow their future talent pool. I have over 20 years’ experience in the Education Sector. I am passionate about inspiring young people to fulfil their full potential; I believe they should be provided with the best opportunities possible to improve their future aspirations.
Work Placement Coordinator — Business, Health & Social Care and Education (City Hub)
My name is Weronika Zalewska and I joined Nottingham College as a Work Placement Coordinator in January 2023. Helping young people find their feet in the world of work is extremely important to me, as it is difficult to move up the career ladder in this day and age, and young people deserve a chance to have an easier time of it. I believe that this generation is the one that will change the world for the better, and in order for this to happen, we need to raise up and support minorities and students who do not have the connections that those more privileged do. I am also an avid reader and historian, hoping to pursue my PhD in History soon.
Work Placement Coordinator — Catering, Travel and Tourism, Science and Digital (City Hub)
I have worked at Nottingham college since 2021 as a LSA before joining the Work Placement team August 2022. I am a happy smiley person who is always up for a giggle. I am based at the City Hub and look after Catering, Hospitality, Travel and Tourism and Aviation as well as Science and Digital.
