I have now qualified and am the proud owner of a PGCE and awaiting my IfL registration and am continuing my blog to chart the next part of the trek into teaching. My original reasons for starting the blog remain detailed below for posterity:
As a requirement of the PGCE course I’m studying as a mature student I had to keep a blog to share resources and experiences with my fellow students and anyone else from the blogging community who might be interested in reading what I have to say and taking a look at the things I’ve found and want to share.
As well as this I’ll be sharing resources I’ve developed and used in my teaching which someone might find useful.
I have extensive experience within industry in the public, private and voluntary sectors mainly in senior level administration, project management and strategic planning to name a few areas. I’ve a BA (Hons) in Business Management and teach BTEC Level 3 Business in years 1 & 2 as part of my placement. There is more boring stuff about me as a person on the About This Blogger page if you really need to have a look.
