Course: BA (Hons) Education & Training

Career: Education Host, Cornwall Wildlife Trust

My Story: 

Taking a slightly unconventional route, Siobhan originally studied for a Zoology Foundation Degree before deciding to complete her final top-up year in BA (Hons) Education and Training at the University Centre Truro and Penwith. Volunteering with local wildlife organisations while studying, Siobhan was able to gain a breadth of knowledge around her specialist subject area.

“I may have come from an unnatural progression route, but I had so much support from the lecturers that the transition was seamless.”

“My advice is to volunteer in as many different places as possible because you never know what valuable skills you could gain.”

“If you’re going to work with children in secondary schools and above, you really need this enthusiasm to keep lessons interesting.”

“Don’t be deterred if you’re coming from a slightly unusual progression route or if you have a different background. The BA (Hons) Education and Training course will help you to succeed in any aspect of education and training after you graduate, there’s not just one option.”

Siobhan’s dedicated volunteer work ensured that she secured herself a position with Cornwall Wildlife Trust after graduating. She now delivers progress sessions to local secondary schools and runs workshops to help young people prepare themselves for employment.
