Career swap part-time student lands teachers’ job

Part-time postgraduate student Louise Rae Allen says Derby College helped her land the teaching job she longed for from childhood.
Psychology graduate Louise, 29, from Ambergate, was taken on by Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Ashbourne while she works towards a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).
Louise, who has dreamed of being a teacher from the age of 11, switched direction after working for five years as a careers co-ordinator at Queen Elizabeth.
She chose the course because it gave her the flexibility to study part-time, while continuing to work, and because of the strong reputation of its tutors. In 2016, the college achieved an "Outstanding" Ofsted rating for PGCE provision.
Louise is completing a two year part-time Postgraduate Certificate in Education, Post 14 in Compulsory Education.

She said: "I'm sure I wouldn't have been taken on as a teacher without taking the course.

"The college tutors are excellent, the quality of their teaching and feedback is always of a high standard. The sessions they deliver are intellectually challenging, interesting and engaging.


"A lot of us work full-time, and the tutors are flexible and supportive. They really go the extra mile."
