Opportunities are available throughout your whole career, so you never know what could be around the corner!
After leaving school and then doing A-levels in History, Sport Studies and English, Chris made the decision not to go to University since he knew he wouldn’t be able to manage his own time effectively and knuckle down!
He started working in residential care homes for autistic children, and after seven years with the company they opened a new school tailored for pupils with learning difficulties and disabilities. With the new school came a new job for Chris, as he became a Teaching Assistant. Chris had thought about going into Teaching while at College, but he assumed it was a career he would need to go to University to achieve and therefore he had missed his opportunity.
It wasn’t until he spoke with his employer that he discovered the Cert Ed course, and decide to apply. Since Chris had worked for the company for a long time, the business was happy to fund the course and help Chris progress his career in teaching.
