I originally completed my BSc (Hons) degree in Health and Social Care at University College Birmingham. I then progressed to an MA in Education and Learning and finally started my PGLTVS qualification to enable me to evolve into a lecturer in higher education. I worked at the University both in my MA placement in 2018 as a mentor and during the academic years 2019-20 as a graduate teaching assistant in Health and Social Care. I became very much immersed into the culture of University College Birmingham and its mission to promote and provide opportunities which meet the diverse needs of students, society and the economy.
