I think it's important to have industry skills and bring that into the educational element because it makes the courses real. The 35 years of engineering experience in industry has really helped me and it provides a real essential link to joining the theory side to the practicality of what we do. Being with the students and seeing them come in a relatively young age and develop, it's one of the best parts of the job. More...

To be a dual professional you need to be able to be in industry and in education, to engage the learners, it’s those real-life stories - this happened to me on site, this happened to me working in someone's house - to be able to contextualise those real-life industry experiences into the classroom or learning environment is the most powerful tool.

Meet... Mike Mullen

Mike Mullen

You need this hybrid model where we're still able to go into industry and practice, as well as bringing that experience back. I generally wouldn't be doing my learners at the best service I can give them if I hadn't been in industry. Seeing the students progress is probably the biggest bonus you get in this job, there's no two ways about it. Especially when you bump into them a few years down the line and they're grateful for the support that you gave them. More...

Engineering Degree Lecturer (UCN)

Meet... Aimee Knight

Aimee Knight

I was really lucky to work in children’s centres, family liaison and children’s charities, and I learnt that I had a lot of skills and experience that I could offer to others. Learners are at an age where they are really thinking about their careers, and I felt that I could be a part of that journey. Teaching has been a fantastic experience for me and I’d really recommend it! More...

Childcare Course Leader

Meet... Beccy Monteith

Beccy Monteith

The students find it really interesting that I have experience of being in the industry and of working in children’s services and social care - I think that brought a different dimension to the programme for them. I feel proud of the students and the progress that they make - they leave different people, they leave feeling empowered. More...
