I certainly feel that Edge Hill will help me realise my ambition to be a great teacher. It’s a great course supported by excellent staff and this combination has made sure that I now feel equipped to begin my career with confidence.

“After a number of years in industry I became frustrated by spending day after day sitting behind a desk on a computer. I realised that my passion for business was not being served and quickly came to realise that a career in teaching was the best way to reignite that enthusiasm.

On top of Edge Hill’s proven track record in teacher training, the communication I had with the course leaders and representatives was fantastic prior to accepting my place on the course.

This course is certainly challenging and demanding, but for those with a desire to teach and a passion for the subject, the commitment it requires is worth it. The support and encouragement you get are second to none and the experiences provided make sure that the skills needed are suitably developed.

I’ve been on two placements and both provided a fantastic backdrop to my PGCE year. I was given a holistic teaching experience and as each placement drew to an end I found it sad to be leaving behind colleagues and students that I’d worked with over a sustained period. Although challenging, each day in school was different and only confirmed my desire to teach for a living.

I certainly feel that Edge Hill will help me realise my ambition to be a great teacher. It’s a great course supported by excellent staff and this combination has made sure that I now feel equipped to begin my career with confidence.”
