Adam Nicholls

Adam Nicholls is a Lecturer in Hair and Beauty at Stockport College

Since qualifying, I managed to secure a full time position here at Stockport College as a lecturer in my subject of makeup artistry. Within my first year teaching at Stockport, I was promoted to the position of Programme Leader, giving me the responsibility to ensure all qualifications ran smoothly and learner progress was monitored throughout the department.

As an added benefit to my teaching I still actively work in the industry as a makeup artist, this allows me to keep my knowledge of the sector up-to-date, getting ahead of trends and challenges that students could face once qualified. Alongside this, I work with another awarding body – writing exams and visiting other colleges up and down the country to monitor the quality of teaching, learning and assessment.
