HE student Justin Scriven
Thirty-five-year-old Justin Scriven teaches drama at a local college and enrolled on the Level 5 Certificate in Education / PGCE so that he will be able to work in a sixth form or academy in the future.
Justin said: “When you’ve been in a role for a while you can easily fall into a way of doing something and it’s only when you learn something new that you see how stale you were before – the course has taught me lots and shown me how to look at my learners in a more individual way and adapt my approach to their individual needs
“I’m far more confident in the classroom now and can share my knowledge and good practice with my colleagues so I’m passing on what I’m learning to others. And since doing the course I feel that I’ve been noticed more by managers at work and that my way of working is valued which can only help with my career progression.
