Debbie Stafford, BA (Hons) Education Studies graduate

"I wanted to pursue a career in teaching and the degree enabled me to continue to study for the PGCE. I expected a varied course of study that would allow me to develop my knowledge of working in schools and some opportunity to gain school experience – both of these were met during my time of study. I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of modules available, so much so that I deviated from my original intention to focus on teaching. The course provides a good foundation to further study if you’re considering a teaching or social work career. It’s also flexible, providing a good range of modular choices and the opportunity to study education in its broadest sense. I’m now an operations manager working for a countywide disability charity based in Exeter."
