Professional Graduate Certificate in Education
Equine teacher Jack has benefitted greatly from the teaching expertise he has gained from his course, which he says will help him take his career to the next level.
Jack has studied the course part-time, to complement his work commitments, and now feels more confident and prepared as a teacher.
“Because the course is part-time, on an evening, it allows us to study around our working hours,” he said.
“We’ve been learning how to deal with different teaching situations and issues that might occur. It has really helped me developed my skills as a teacher and has given me ideas about how to deal with different situations.
“I work as an equine teacher, covering the practical side, and also as a freelance equine instructor teaching people how to ride. I wanted to do this course to help me develop more as a teacher and get more of a background in the lecturing side of things.
“It has really helped me teach in the further education sector.”
