It was receiving this level of care and attention even before becoming a student which convinced me to come to Huddersfield! “As part of my course I’ve already gone on a number of placements within schools. These placements have all been assessed and I’ve received fantastic support, mentoring and feedback to help with my development. Taking part in these different school placements has really helped build my confidence about going into the classroom and working with different groups. “Through the Huddersfield Students’ Union I’ve also led on the establishment of a First Aid Society with St. John’s Ambulance.

Helping to grow inspirational teachers of the future

Louise Coverdale Senior Lecturer, Teacher Training

“From a very young age I’ve always wanted to teach – I remember lining up my toys and giving them lessons – so once I qualified I couldn’t have been happier to be doing it for real! “As my teaching career progressed I became more heavily involved in mentoring trainee teachers. I absolutely loved this side of the job as through this work it felt like I was truly having an impact on what was taking place in the classroom.

I work alongside some truly inspirational trainees – watching them develop and blossom and eventually grow into outstanding teachers of the future.

“After teaching for nearly 20 years, including six years as a Headteacher, I decided to return to university and study an MA in Early Childhood with the ambition of becoming a teacher trainer. I actually did the course here at the University of Huddersfield as I was blown away by all the support available. When I graduated I was so proud – it had been an aspiration for so long and I’d finally got there! “I’m now able to work alongside some truly inspirational trainees – watching them develop and blossom and eventually grow into outstanding teachers of the future – I find this really rewarding. I’m also now studying for a doctorate to help ensure I can continue to explore and share the teaching practice of the future.”

My student journey so far

Rosie Grant

Primary Education PGCE with QTS “I chose to study my Primary Education PGCE with QTS at the University of Huddersfield because of the great reputation it has for teacher training. Since graduating, I now work as a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) at Earlsheaton Infant School – the school where I did my first placement.

During assessment visits, my tutors were always really positive and would give very specific and practical advice to help improve my practice. “The support I received from my link tutor throughout my placements was amazing. It’s really quite a nerve-wracking experience walking into different schools and classrooms, but the tutors recognise this and are always

there to support you whenever you need them. During assessment visits, my tutors were always really positive and would give very specific and practical advice to help improve my practice. “I couldn’t have been better prepared for starting my first year of teaching. The staff at Huddersfield ensure that you know what to expect, what questions to ask and provide ongoing support through drop-in sessions, conferences and email contact with an NQT lead. I’ve also decided to complete my full Master’s qualification during my first year of teaching as I feel that my assignments allow me to continue to reflect on my own practice and approach to teaching. “I absolutely love working with children; they make me laugh and their excitement to learn new things ensures that every day is different and fun. I look forward to seeing the children every day and feel very lucky and privileged to have been offered my first teaching job at such a beautiful school!”

Meet our staff

Developing outstanding teachers of the future

Susan Timmins Senior Lecturer

“My biggest achievement in my career so far has been gaining my PGCE. Gaining this qualification has opened so many doors for me and meant that I’ve been able to build a career doing something I absolutely love! “My subject specialisms are ICT, Computing and Business – areas that have evolved hugely over recent years and today have much broader remits and present far greater challenges. My doctoral studies focus on the evolution of these subject areas within school settings and will help to tell the stories and challenges that my peers have had to overcome.

Our combined expertise, practical support, subject specific mentoring and sharing our research interests mean that our trainees are given the tools and confidence to go out and become outstanding teachers of the future.

“I’ve always been passionate about working with young people. Before teaching at the University I’ve been a youth worker and taught in a range of roles within secondary schools, including Advanced Skills Teacher, Head of Key Stage 4 and as part of the Senior Leadership Team. As part of my teaching roles I’ve loved mentoring newly qualified teachers and so my progression to my role at the University felt really natural. “It’s a real privilege to share my knowledge and be part of someone else’s development journey. Our ethos here is to build close relationships with our trainees, work with individuals to support them to achieve. Our combined expertise, practical support, subject specific mentoring and sharing our research interests mean that our trainees are given the tools and confidence to go out and become outstanding teachers of the future.”
