From February 2019 to July 2020 Victoria worked as a Roving Tutor for the college in the East Midlands area. She mentored learners out in the workplace, supporting and assisting them with gaining their Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications.

Victoria’s favourite and most rewarding part of her job is watching the learners mature and blossom, seeing their confidence grow and their life and industry skill set expand. She is also very proud to introduce them to the incredible world of horseracing which gave her some of the most memorable days of her life. To help young people at the very beginning of this amazing journey is very humbling and she takes great pride in following all NHC learner’s progression.
