I never had any teaching background, I was very much learning on the job.
However, after seeing so much good practice within the Beacon I knew I wanted to develop my role further and go down the academic route of teaching. I wanted to make sure I was up to standard for the students’ benefit.
I was never very confident in myself, especially standing at the front of a classroom, but my confidence has grown, due to the fact that my knowledge has developed, and I have such a better understanding of how to teach, and being able to articulate that knowledge to a range of learners is inspiring.”
Being able to earn an income while I study towards a Higher Apprenticeship has made such a difference, and something financially I never thought possible.
