Learning can be life changing
Endon mum of two Diane Leopard is a perfect example
of how adult learning can prove a life changing choice
after she decided to delve into family history two years
ago, prompted by her husband, retired hospital surgeon
Diane joined him on a Leek College course and soon
became fascinated by her own ancestors, including
William Large, one of North Staffordshire’s first
centenarians. She discovered old photographs of her
ancestor and made him the focus of an Open University
study on Writing the History of Families.
Diane’s own life changed after she was diagnosed
with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) eighteen months ago. But,
thanks to her passion for learning, new opportunities
have followed the diagnosis and she decided to start
her own business in Family History Research. Spurred
on by treatments to manage her own MS, Diane has
also completed Level 3 qualifications in alternative
therapies including Aromatherapy, Indian Head
Massage and Ear Candle Therapy and aims to offer
relaxing treatments in clients’ own homes.
