Sue Mountain - Head of Health & Social Care
I have worked at Oaklands for a year, but have worked in Further Education for the last ten years, five years as a Head of Department and five as a lecturer. Prior to working in Education I was a Senior Officer in the Prison service for ten years. I am passionate about ensuring young people have every opportunity to meet their potential no matter what their background or prior qualifications. I believe that with the right support everyone can succeed and move on to their chosen career.  I have a fantastic team in Hair and Beauty/ Early Years and Health & Social Care who have the experience and share my passion to provide exceptional support to the students in our department that enable them to be successful in whatever path they choose.
