Flexible Modular Primary PGCE

Current Job

I am a classroom teacher having so far taught Year 4, 5 and 6 and am responsible for two subject areas.

What are your lasting memories of your time at the university?

There was incredible support for students. From the initial support from the administrators, through to academic support, the impression was that the university wanted everyone to succeed and would help as much as possible.

What is your greatest achievement since graduation?

Flexibility and being able to deal with anything that is thrown at me! I am able to work with children who don’t always have an easy home-life and I help them to believe in themselves.

What advice would you give to graduates?

Persist and keep persisting! With no partner at home during the week, no family nearby and three young children, it seemed at one point impossible that I could manage to do my PGCE, but people were incredibly supportive and at times inspiring.
