Following a twenty-year career working for the NHS, UCLan graduate, Terence Jagger, is now working at the very University I credit my own academic progression. In 2018 I successful gaining a teaching role at the University and now works as a Work Based Education Tutor in UCLan’s School of Health and Midwifery, where I teaches and supports students on the Foundation Degree in Health and Social Care and the Higher Degree Apprenticeship for Assistant Practitioners. “It is such a privilege to be at UCLan as a member of staff and to support the programme I initially studied, which I truly believe in. As a lifelong Prestonian, I feel proud to be giving something back.”

Terence initially spent ten years working as a Senior Cardiac Physiologist for the NHS. I later in 2014 embarked on a career as a Trainee Assistant Practitioner in the Outpatient Oncology Department at Royal Preston Hospital, and part of my new position I was offered the chance to study a Foundation Degree in Health and Social Care for Assistant Practitioners at the University of Central Lancashire.
