Your first encounter with Entry Point North was as a student yourself. Tell us about that.
I've had the opportunity to study at different institutions, academies and university and all have been great. When I was a student at Entry Point North, I immediately felt at home. I got an early insight in the training philosophy and understood the importance of HOW students are being trained and approached to perform their best. Entry Point North's philosophy, that every student is trainable, aligns with my own philosophy and values.
You are now on the other side, working with students as a Training Specialist. What is a typical day like for you?
You can say it is like leading a unit of people. As a Training Specialist, you may also work as a Course Supervisor, meaning you manage and supervise the course, organize the schedule and monitor the progress of the students. You collaborate closely with other Entry Point North departments about everything connected to the course, such as giving input on teaching material or adjusting the schedule. And, most importantly, you give course lectures and make sure your students have the tools needed to succeed in the training. It is a very dynamic environment and not one day is like the other.
How would you describe the culture at Entry Point North?
I would say it is diversity at its best. Everyone is thoughtful and ready to help, even if it is not their task or main area of responsibility. People here are treated with respect and their opinions matter.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working as a Training Specialist?
Spending time with my family, exploring playgrounds, climbing trees with my kids, and biking around Malmö.
