Isla O’Reilly, PGDE Secondary Education graduate

“I had thought about teaching for a long time, but with a young family the time wasn’t right. I wanted a stable job to fit around my family and teaching is ideal for that. Because the course was offered locally it was possible for me to study and work around my commitments. The placements have been brilliant. You take classes by yourself under teacher supervision and can design and develop the lessons in line with class topics. I absolutely loved it and I’m really excited to be starting a new chapter.”

Isla studied on our Professional Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education (PGDE), specialising in chemistry and science, and is now a teacher at Nairn Academy.
