Ricki Steele

BA (Hons) Teaching and Learning

"If I can tell you one thing, know that Education is much wider and bigger than teaching. If you have doubts about being a teacher, don't worry. There is a lot more to Education than the classroom."

Rachel Malone

BA (Hons) Teaching and Learning

"The tutors will help you learn how to work with children in different ways. You could work in the early years like me, you could go into being a primary school teacher or work in a secondary school. Or you could work in a youth organization and they are just as, if not more, rewarding. I wasn't sure what route I wanted to take professionally so I wanted to keep my options open."

Daryl Greenslade

BA (Hons) Primary Education with QTS

"I'm aiming to become a Deputy Head in ten years, that's my ten-year plan. And I can say that I've got the university to thank for that."

Scott Fisher

BA (Hons) Primary Education with QTS

"When the opportunity presented itself, I took it and returned to college in my 30s. And yes, as a single parent and carer, I have had times when I struggled, but I have always reached out for help and the University has always been there to give it."
