Esports HE Pathway Leader at Barnsley College University Centre
“The biggest benefit of working for Barnsley College has been the support I have received to advance my career and develop my skills as a teacher and leader. I first started working for the College through my PGCE studies, I then secured a VH contract, and after just 2 years I was able to secure a permanent teaching contract. The support I've had from the College has given me the confidence, and skills to develop a more bespoke curriculum that offers more tailored courses for our students.”

“I've been with Barnsley College for 16 years now, and in that time I've had so many opportunities to develop my skills, go on lots of training, CPD, and I'm currently undertaking my Level 7 qualification in Leadership and Management all funded by College. I also do lots of volunteer work outside of work hours with local charities and College has always supported me in my efforts to give back to those in need in our shared community.”
