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 Butlins 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 my role as Careers Lead to help shape the futures of our students.
Mrs L Oldfield - Senior Assistant Principal & SLT Careers Lead
I first came to Skegness Academy in 2011 when I was training to be a teacher at a local secondary school and I came here on a 6 week placement and fell in love with the school instantly. I was then fortunate enough to secure a full time job here once I qualified as a Sociology teacher. Throughout my time here I have been Director of Post 16 Studies and now currently I am a Senior Assistant Principal. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, following in my Dad’s footsteps. I worked hard and it paid off. I studied for my degree a Lincoln University but as I have got older I wish I had gone further afield and experienced somewhere new. I am passionate about education and supporting young people to realise their dreams and raise the bar to aspire high. I feel incredibly proud to work with so many amazing and inspiring young people and see their hard work pay off to enable them to move on to suitable and sustained destinations and play an active role in society.
