Helen Quinn - Managing Director and Principal of Pembroke College
As a former student of the college herself, Helen continued her training with Steiner in London before working as a therapist on the Cruise Ships in the Caribbean. Having spent some years in the retail end of the busines she decided to make a career in Training and Development.
Helen has developed Pembroke College to ensure that along with our team of certified tutors, our students are qualified to the highest International Standards and afforded every opportunity to gain employment within the beauty industry.
Being very aware of the psychological role that individual differences play in career choice, one of the fundamental tenets of Helens philosophy of training is that prospective students should have a comprehensive career consultation in order to guide them on the path that best suits their personality. Consequently applicants for all courses must first attend a private consultation with Helen. School leavers must attend with one or other of their parents of guardians. In this way their suitability can be accessed and their hopes and aspirations clarified.
