Bee Toon has been an experienced dog groomer for over 20 years and trained the staff she employed, whom later progressed to opening their own successful dog grooming businesses . Her passion is to inspire people to work hard, train to become competant stylist and achieve their personal goals. This was her own motivation to later become a qualified Lecturer working in a Further Education College teaching various subjects but specialised in City & Guilds Dog Grooming courses.  During this time all her students achieved their goals gaining higher grades than set, qualifiying into employment or self employment in industry. Bee developed the course to grow rapidly during her time there, growing from one course per week to four. Alongside her job Bee owns a successful grooming business in Haverhill where she encourages all her staff to be the best they can, working together as a team of stylists.  This salon has now become one of the Accredited Academy sites for training students on City & Guilds accredited courses.  Bee is passionate about teaching and recently decided to open her own training academy offering City & Guilds accredited courses over a shorter period of time whilst maintaining high standards and quality teaching, which also gained her an outstanding grade from within her own teaching profession.
