PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education)
Specialist Personal Tutor

Lauren Austin

While working for Warren James jewellers, Lauren did her teacher training and was presented with the opportunity to train new staff in London.

“Getting my PGCE definitely helped me to get this opportunity. The experience was really good as it gave a different opportunity albeit in a different field and I could utilise the skills I got from the PGCE.”

After completing her PGCE she was hired the following term as a dance teacher to cover maternity leave.

“Getting my PGCE definitely helped prepare me for my first teaching role. I now have the necessary knowledge of how to plan and structure my lessons.”

Since then she has become a Specialist Personal Tutor at the College.
