I have worked in education (ish) for my whole working life. I got my BSc (Hons) Biological Sciences and went straight for my PGCE Secondary Science and taught Mixed sciences to ages 11-18 for 4 years. I then did supply teaching for a year before becoming a family support worker for a church for 3 years. I'm now working as a Learning Technologist, helping to train educators in how best to use EdTech in their teaching and helping to maintain a lot of the behind the scenes admin level things on tech as well.
