Case Study: Sarah Worrall PGCE/Cert Ed 2012-2014

"I am so pleased that I made the decision to study a PGCE/Certificate in Education at LMC as it has led me to the beginning of a new career. Being able to study a University course at my local college has made this possible. Although I have spent the last 30 years in retail managment, my ambition has always been to teach. Returning to studying after this amount of time was my biggest fear. How would I cope with the academic work? I found, however, that the teaching has been the biggest and most rewarding learning curve for me.

I have loved writing essays, researching and class work on a Monday evening, although it has been challenging. As a wife and mum of three children with a job in an unrelated industry, the pressures from day to day life would have made giving up the easy option. Fortunately, my sheer determination and ambition to see it through to graduation with support from my tutor, prevented this. Graduation day will be a very proud day for me and my family.

I am now a part time lecturer in Foundation Learning at LMC and I am beginning a top up BA in Education and Professional Studies in September with UCLan. Proof that it is never too late to learn and embark on a new career."
