Rebecca started her career in teaching and learning as an NVQ assessor, supporting adult students to achieve qualifications in English, maths and ICT. Although she enjoyed assessing, it was the small teaching aspect of the job that Rebecca got the most fulfilment from so she moved into a role that enabled her to do this full-time. For the last three years she has worked as a functional skills tutor for a local charity and says that completing her course at Bishop Burton College has helped widen her role by giving her the knowledge she needed to develop her courses.
