Martina Inspires Foundation Learning Students

In the second of our ‘Industry Spotlight Online’ series organised by Foundation Learning teacher Disun Majekodunmi, Martina Mullings captivated our students yesterday with her compelling educational and career journey. Arriving in the UK from Jamaica aged 16, today Martina is a successful entrepreneur and consultant. She is CEO of Malearn Training, an Early Years Regulatory inspector, and a Senior Standards Verifier for an awarding body. Martina also runs after-school, half-term and summer clubs.

Martina initially enrolled on a Level 2 Business course at college, before progressing to Level 3, and then a Business and Marketing degree at Middlesex University.

During her time at college, she was handpicked as a student mentor, where she provided invaluable support to fellow learners and this led to a paid role. Additionally, she took advantage of various opportunities, such as international exchange programmes.

Emphasising the importance of continual learning and exploring new subjects, Martina encouraged students to explore apprenticeships and traineeship options. She highlighted the significance of networking and cultivating relationships with peers, educators, and employers, citing these connections as instrumental in her personal growth and career trajectory.

Martina’s story also underscored the importance of holistic development, as she advocated for prioritising wellbeing and nutrition alongside academic pursuits. She stressed the transformative impact of strong mentorship and urged individuals to seize every opportunity, as each experience has the potential to unlock new avenues of possibility.

Martina’s journey demonstrates the rewards that come from striving for excellence and pushing beyond perceived limitations. Her achievements exemplify the importance of ambition, resilience, and her commitment to lifelong learning.
