15 years ago, I fell in love with education and have worked in schools since then. Along the way I have extended my personal development through NVQs and have been a Higher-Level Teaching Assistant for several years now. The next obvious step was to gain a full teaching qualification but without a degree I would have to leave employment to become a full-time student or study part time for a protracted period, neither of which (in my 40’s) were realistic options. I was stuck. The new school based 3-year undergraduate course with QTS allows me to continue to work alongside my studies. Delighted – extremely. Excited – definitely. Nervous – I can’t wait to start!
