Biography

I chose this course as the top up option to my Teaching and Learning foundation degree. I aspire to teach in a primary school, so this was the most appropriate next step for me. The course gave me a deeper understanding of educational practice alongside how to become a reflective professional, which is a key part of teaching. Studying at Petroc meant that I could complete a degree around my children and home life.

The most enjoyable part about studying at Petroc is creating close friendships with peers and having phenomenal support from the lecturers and staff.

My long-term plan is to become a Primary teacher and work towards the completion of a Masters degree.

Feeling unsure and having moments of doubt are very much part of studying for a degree, so know that you will not be alone in having those feelings! A degree is more than achievable if you are willing to put the work in.
