“After volunteering for a local rugby club, I realised how much I enjoyed working alongside young people. I decided to ask friends who were teachers about their jobs and routes into teaching which led me to leave my career as a designer and apply to Ark.

Building relationships with students and being able to see visible impact in their studies and in their behaviour is a joy. It is something I can place as a priority in my teaching practice; to form great relationships that hopefully enable a better climate in my classes.

I think Ark Teacher Training provided me with confidence in the techniques, strategies and knowledge to improve my practice."
