Meet the Team
Miss L Tyler - Careers Lead & Careers Adviser
I joined Skegness Academy in 2014 as a Sixth Form Learning Mentor. During my time at Skegness Academy I have completed the Teach First CELP accreditation, Level 3 Careers Guidance course and Level 6 QCF Diploma in Career Guidance and Development. I am now the Careers Lead for Skegness Academy. Prior to joining Skegness Academy I started as a Redcoat at Butlin's Skegness. Believing I had bigger and better shoes to fill I secured the role of Entertainment Officer for P&O Cruises where I travelled the world for 5 years, experiencing everything life has to offer and challenging myself at every opportunity. There I was promoted to Assistant Cruise Director, which was a huge achievement, and one I am very proud of. When I decided to hang up my sea shoes I knew I wanted to give back and inspire young people to chase their dream irrespective to their starting point which led me to Skegness Academy. I am really looking forward to help shape the future of our students and provide bespoke to support to those approaching decision time over their next steps and post 16 or 18 destinations.
Mr D Field - Senior Leader for Careers
I started my teaching career in central London (Hackney) before embarking on my Skegness Academy career in 2013 as a Teacher of PE. Prior to this I completed a Sport and Physical Education degree and PGCE at the University of Bedfordshire from 2008-2011 and worked as a lifeguard and supervisor in a local leisure centre as well as completing three 6-month periods in America as a Soccer (FOOTBALL!) coach and PT (personal trainer).
During my time at Skegness Academy I have been a Head of Year and a Senior Assistant Principal before my current role as Deputy Principal. Throughout these roles I have taken great pride in serving the local community and building on the astounding opportunities Skegness Academy provide our students.
An important facet of the Careers work we complete at Skegness Academy is ensuring that students realise their full potential and recognise that no door is closed to them, regardless of their background or location.
I am proud to work with our Careers Lead, Miss Tyler and the staff body to enable students to make informed decisions about their future and facilitate the skills, knowledge and ambition for them to do so. I am passionate about raising the awareness and developing the understanding of our students regarding their futures and how this is very much in their hands!
Seeing and hearing from our students in the local area, or further afield, remains one of the biggest rewards of our job.
