The Bejewelled Academy was developed after the establishment of The Melissa Leon company – a North London based jewellery design and tutorial company, setup in August 2008 by Melissa Doussey.
The Bejewelled Academy is a company with creativity at its core! Our aim is to provide unique and innovative workshops that use creativity to help build the confidence of our participants, while promoting teamwork, care and consideration. We do this by encouraging interaction and some form of ‘working together’ in many of our after school clubs and creative courses.
We strongly believe that learning something new should be fun and not daunting. Creative learning makes developing new skills more enjoyable and also enables learners to discover personal skills and abilities that perhaps they had not yet tapped into. We also believe that creative learning should have a wider impact on the life of the participant. – whether that be helping them to gain confidence for a career move, or to improve family interaction. It is for this reason that we are developing our own learning system and are constantly developing and expanding the range of workshops and courses that we offer.
We are passionate about creativity and want to make this form of learning accessible to all people in the community, through means of affordable clubs, party activities, workshops, courses and more. One of our most newest and most impactful courses is our Y-Preneur Course. This is mainly offered as an online, self-taught course, with adhoc support offered throughout. The Bejewelled Academy’s Director, Melissa was inspired to create this course by her own business startup and entrepreneurial experiences, as well as the understanding that a mainstream form of education is not for every child, young person or adult.
