Meet the team

Eloise Beard - Head of Health and Social Care

I am an alumnus of Haywards Heath College, having completed my studies in Health and Social Care. I then graduated from the University of Sussex with a degree in Criminology, Sociology and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education. Previously, I have taught Religious Education and Philosophy in a secondary and sixth form setting.

I am also an experienced Early Years Practitioner and I have trained as a Pharmacy Dispenser and Care Assistant. I hope my industry experience will provide students with a unique perspective of the field. My vision is to support the distinct capabilities of students to ensure they achieve their full potential and become the next generation of health, social and child care practitioners.
