Growing up in Bristol Jo was exploring her creative side from a very young age and decided on a career in fashion at the age of 10 after watching a fashion show on TV. After completing a fashion design degree at Nottingham Trent University, Jo moved to London. She started off working with small design companies as a design room assistant and got the hands on experience of what it takes to make a company work. Jo got into teaching by accident when she went to see a friend at the college she worked in. The manager desperately needed someone to teach a fashion illustration evening class and the rest is history. After 12 years of teaching fashion and Textiles at Barking & Dagenham College Jo joined the Fashion Enter team in the autumn of 2017 and is now the senior lecturer for the apprenticeship courses. Jo loves seeing her apprentices grow in confidence and become competent in the work place and is committed to them leaving with employable skills.
