I started my career with Walsall College in 2006 teaching Construction to 14-16 year olds. After a few years in this role I felt ready to progress my career when the Advanced Practitioner post became available, so I applied and was successful. The title was eventually changed to Learning Development Coach.
The interview/assessment process for the role was quite challenging, with a presentation to Heads of Cluster and followed by an interview with the then Assistant Principal. Receiving a phone call to say I was the successful candidate made the achievement feel even more rewarding because of this process.
I have now worked at the college for seven years and have enjoyed every second. There are always new challenges but I work with great people who are always prepared to help and support each other and I have made a lot of friends whilst being here.
Walsall College has always been good to me; I have always been offered excellent support by management, amazing benefits and excellent Continuous Professional Development.
