Having completed an NVQ level 2 and level 3 diploma in Children and Young People, I worked in a pre-school for a few of years before becoming a Supply Teaching Assistant. This provided myself with the experience of working with a range of ages. It also gave me an opportunity of working in both mainstream schools as well as in a pupil referral unit.

I then studied Psychology where I achieved a Bachelor’s with honours degree. Once I have gained more experience of working within educational settings, I would like to work towards a doctorate in Educational Psychology.
