After gaining a BA (Joint Hons) in English and Drama, Janine continued in education to gain a teaching qualification before moving on to work with learners of all ages and abilities. Her work has been a journey through education from many different aspects, including directing a Theatre-in-Arts Company exploring GCSE & A Level texts and devising and delivering training. After varying teaching posts, for independent, mainstream and SEND education providers, she currently delivers consultancy in presentation skills, communication, speech and drama and educational programmes.
Janine also continues to enjoy her work with the English Speaking Board (International) Ltd, an awarding body, offering examinations in communication, debating, employability and interview skills, as an examiner and moderator. She has a broad range of experience in judging competitions, working with organisations such as Young Enterprise, schools and private organisations.
Janine believes communication builds confidence and is a great advocate of breaking down barriers, to enable all, to have their say in a respectful, confident and empowering way and her experience is the essence of what makes her approach and understanding unique and accessible.
