Plumbing tutor Shaun Simms is relishing the chance to pass on his skills to young plumbers after successfully completing a Cert Ed at Derby College. Shaun, who retrained as a plumber 10 years ago after a career in IT, realised he might make a good teacher while showing a friend on an electrical course the plumbing aspects of the job. He was told about the Cert Ed course at the Roundhouse, and after sailing through the Level 3 Award in Education, went on to the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training before progressing to the full Certificate in Education. Shaun, who is described by his Derby College lecturers as an "outstanding teacher" is now working at another Further Education College in the region where he teaches level 1 and 2 plumbing students. He loves his teaching role and particularly enjoys seeing the young people on his courses develop their skills and grow in confidence.
I was so impressed with the quality of teaching throughout my time at Derby College. I enjoyed everything about my course and actively looked forward to my assessments. My lecturers made to feel so welcome – they've been such an inspiration to me and I wouldn't be the teacher I am now without them.
Courses in this area are run at our Roundhouse campus.
