POSTGRADUATE CERTIFICATE IN EDUCATION (POST COMPULSORY)
PARTNER INSTITUTION: WIGAN & LEIGH COLLEGE
Joseph initially studied FD Sports Coaching at Wigan & Leigh College and then progressed to the main UCLan campus to compete BA (Hons) Sports Coaching.
Joseph decided to return to study to Wigan & Leigh College to complete the PGCE to allow him to achieve his long term ambition to become a teacher in the post compulsory sector.
"The highlights of the course were working with a range of subject specialists and gaining insight into their methods. Originally, I had only intended on working with level three students, however, when I got hands on experience in teaching students with lower literacy and numeracy skills, I found I had a natural strength in teaching in this level. I really enjoyed the satisfaction of being able to influence a student in the right direction".
