EX- ENGINEER SETS SIGHTS ON TEACHING CAREER

 

Jonathan Moody had a career in engineering before considering his future as a teacher and going back into full-time education at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside.

 

Jonathan (35) already had experience of education, having trained as a development engineer and having completed an access course in History and Biology at North Lincolnshire College.

 

He decided on a change of direction as he wanted to get out of the competetiveness of  the business he worked in. In order to be a teacher Jonathan needed to study a curriculum-based degree so he chose to study BA (Hons) History at the Lincoln campus.

 

“I really enjoy being a mature student,” he said. “In fact it’s excellent experience for a career in teaching as I study with 18-and 19-year-olds and they often ask me for advice.”

 

Jonathan is on his second year of his course at the university and will go on to study a PGCE before becoming a teacher.
