Originally from Preston, Josh took his undergraduate degree at the University of Chester before taking his PGCE with us. "I chose the University of Cumbria because of its great reputation. The ebst thing about my university experience was the placements I received. They have been varied and provided me with a lot of different opportunities."

"Teaching is the best job in the world. It's very rewarding."

One particular feature Josh can recommend is when our course starts. "Starting the course in January rather than September was great because the cohort was much smaller, plus it meant I would be applying for job at a quieter time of year - less competition!"
