I left school in 2016 with no GCSE’s, wasn’t allowed to go to prom and during my last year, I had less than 45% attendance. I buckled down in York College and achieved a distinction in Professional Cookery and Patisserie Chef. I then went on to work at the York University as a wedding caterer.
I am now currently working within a primary school and private nursery studying Early Year’s Education and will be going on to doing a BA honours in Early Years Education very soon! In the future I’m going on to do a primary education degree at York St. John’s University after my Early Years Education course is complete. All this being achieved within 3 years of leaving school after leaving with not a single GCSE.
I think this is a good example to students who don’t care about their education just like I didn’t, which made my journey to becoming a teacher much harder.
Thank you so much to @marcrowland73 for such an engaging and thought provoking CPD session on supporting students during lockdown and their eventual return to the classroom. Much appreciated by all colleagues @ValeYorkAcademy.
It is really good to see that some students manage to keep up with the cooking skills. Please send pictures in of your delicious food. House points will be awarded for every entry! pic.twitter.com/1pzm…
