From school support to teacher in the making - Miss Hobbs' PGCE story
'I made the decision to enrol on the PGCE having spent plenty of time in a classroom setting. I considered a lot of other courses, but Shipley College seemed like the right package for me: Saturday classes so I can juggle work and family life, a friendly academic setting with small classes, accredited by the University of Huddersfield and run by excellent tutors who never stop pushing us in the right direction and have a wealth of teaching experience and theory to draw from. I would definitely recommend teacher training courses at Shipley College!.'
