Jem – FdA Childhood Education

Whilst working as a Teaching Assistant, Jem is gaining the qualifications to enable her to persue her dream teaching career.

"The course was 2 days per week and this fitted in really well because I was working as a Teaching Assistant at Alverton School at the time."

Hometown: Penzance

Course: FdA Childhood Education & BA (Hons) Human Behaviour Studies

My story:

After doing her Level 3 studies at Penwith College, Jem was delighted to find out she could progress on to Higher Education at the same campus. She started at the University Centre studying FdA Childhood Education before taking BA (Hons) Human Behaviour Studies as her top up degree. She is now returning to the University Centre for her Post Graduate Certificate in Education to pursue her dream of teaching.

Jem said: “I studied at Penwith because of the smaller class sizes and individual support that I knew would be beneficial to me.”

“The tutors were responsive and attentive when I needed help.”

“The module content for the courses was great too, and flexible so I could tailor it to my interests and what I want to do in the future.”

“The course was 2 days per week and this fitted really well because I was working as a Teaching Assistant at Alverton School at the time.”
