Supporting Teaching and Learning student, Helen Slater, tells us about her journey on the course and how it’s helped her to commence a new career as a teaching assistant.
“I am so grateful to have been able to participate in a course with a flexible structure that I could fit around my busy life. The classes were interesting, topical and full of variety.
“I have certainly learnt beyond the curriculum syllabus due to the expertise, insight and experience of my tutors. I would particularly like to thank teacher Margaret Shutt, for her fun and enthusiastic classes. She has a wonderful natural talent for getting the best out of students and helping us to feel supported throughout the course.
“I now feel prepared to start my new career as a teaching assistant. I know that fellow students on the course are as grateful as me for the excellent experience and I’m sure the schools are too, for developing the next generation of teaching assistants. I feel privileged to learn from the best at Leeds City College!”
