Liverpool John Moores University

Bachelor Degree
2013 - 2016

I gained an invaluable skillset whilst undertaking my Bachelor’s degree. I specialised in print and online journalism in my final year, and as part of the news team, sourced, validated and published news stories both online: http://www.jmu-journalism.co.uk/ and in the university’s newspaper Liverpool Life. I ran LJMU Journalism society for two years and I was the first journalism undergraduate student to ever reach 120wpm.

University of Chester

2016 - 2017

The Masters module for my PGCE currently focuses on master’s level writing and the nature and purpose of education. This includes leading learning theory, pedagogical perspectives and child development. The PGCE course has helped me as a teacher to reflect upon my practice and to understand different ways of teaching a specific topic, to ensure every pupil is included and every pupil can learn as much as possible in their secondary education. I have also had specific training on the new GCSE 9-1 by the Chief of Examiners for the leading exam board in English.
