Camron Guttridge enrolled onto our Level 5 Education & Training course to further develop his role as Learning Technologist here at the college to gain a deeper understanding of teaching and learning.
After previously working as a content editor, he wanted a new challenge working in the education sector but needed to gain more experience first. So far, Camron has developed his knowledge of teaching and learning practices, curriculum design and the wider, crucial role of a tutor.
He tells us that his tutors have provided 1:1 support whenever needed, are very approachable and nothing is ever too much. Camron’s end goal is to one day become a tutor or lecturer and he feels that the course is fully preparing him for this.
The course has really helped me to progress and develop my delivery in the classroom. The tutors are very supportive, they provide lots of motivation and encouragement with progression and personal development.”
Jenny completed the Level 5 Diploma Education & Training course alongside her part-time Apprenticeship Coach role at the college.
Meet our tutors
Teaching and Learning Manager David Lenton studied Education Studies with English Language and Literature at Liverpool John Moores University, before completing his PGCE with Manchester Metropolitan University. He has taught at numerous colleges as well as being part of Liverpool Hope University's steering committee and focus group for their teacher training programmes.
David recently joined the college and is really enjoying teaching here: "It's great to be able to teach the fundamentals of teaching to new practitioners. Our curriculum doesn’t just encompass the content of the specification, we also integrate emerging and current practice within the education industry because of the links between curriculum and teaching and learning."
