Tammy is following her dream.

We loved teaching Tammy at the school last year and watching her develop her skills as a tiler - completely changing career and following her dream. We hope her case study inspires you to follow yours.

Tammy with tiling diploma

Tammy King from Edinburgh took the City & Guilds Tiling Diploma Course in Autumn last year.
After a career working in various business roles she wanted a change so she could start her own business and spend more time with her daughter during her formative years.

Tammy has always loved home decor and the decorative arts, and seeing before and after images of people’s homes on social media. Having worked in style and design for a few years she had developed a good sense of taste.

Her grandfather was a builder and growing up Tammy felt inspired by his craftsmanship and attention to detail, and she aspires to bring those skills to her own clients. Since finishing the course, Tammy has set up her own business tiling residential homes.

Tammy said: “I wanted to learn everything I needed to know to get out there and start tiling and I feel the course really helped prepare me for this. I was surprised at how hands on the course was. You start tiling on day 1 and every single day after that. It’s a great way to learn. The team were fantastic and answered my questions and taught us best practice. The post-course support is incredible. You gain access to the many graduates that came before you and can learn from them and the Trades Training Team. The course has allowed me to start my own business which means the world to me.”
