My decision to undertake my teacher training at Chester was due in no little part to the incredibly positive experience I had in the English department.

Graduated: BA (Hons) English with Creative Writing

Currently: Teaching at an FE college for students with a wide range of learning difficulties

Whilst at Chester I studied English with Creative Writing and, as well as receiving an education, had an excellent time within the department, becoming one of the co-editors for the creative writing magazine Pandora's Box and getting involved in the department's open-mic nights.

The opportunity to work on Pandora's Box led to myself and friends developing our own creative writing publication Albatross, of which we published two well subscribed issues. The process of editing these magazines helped to develop my eye for detail and organisational skills, skills which are particularly useful in my current role.

Upon completing my undergraduate degree I progressed to a PGCE course at Chester. My decision to undertake my teacher training at Chester was due in no little part to the incredibly positive experience I had in the English department.

I now teach at an FE college for students with a wide range of learning difficulties, a job that is constantly rewarding and challenging, and which I would not have without the comprehensive grounding of my English degree.

Many areas of my life continue to benefit from choosing to study at Chester, and despite having graduated several years ago, still keep in touch with staff members. That should tell you all you need to know about the approachable nature and commitment of the faculty!
