Teacher / Work Based Assessor

After a hugely successful career in the NHS first helping people then supporting NHS staff to further help people it felt like the ‘natural progression’ for Emma Campbell (49) to make the transition into the education sector.

With a wealth of industry qualifications up to degree level it was the Post Graduate Certificate in Education that was the missing piece of the jigsaw that Emma needed, “I feel very fortunate that I could study the course I needed on my doorstep and my local college.”

The course provides the right level of knowledge, skills development and professional experiences to develop aspiring teachers. In her current role as a work-based assessor in the College, Emma had already worked with learners assessing their competence but it was the course that provided the vital insights into the transition to teaching, “The course taught me, and practically showed me, the most important aspect of ensuring g the learner is at the heart of all we do. I learnt the latest in evidence-based teaching methods to ensure my learners make the progress needed.”

Course tutor, Fiona McCabe said, “Emma was highly engaged and motivated and really enjoyed all aspects of learning. She used her excellent communication and collaboration skills with real impact and I’m sure she’ll be a huge success as a teacher.”

The PGCE is a part time course that requires industry experience alongside the evening class study. You too could follow Emma into the industry, apply now >>
