Meet Amber-Rose Warner whose love of working with children led her to a degree at Herts
|Current job role||Teaching Assistant and Master's student|
|Year of graduation||2021|
|Course of study||BEd (Hons) Primary|
Amber-Rose has always loved working with children which made her choice of which course to study an easy one. She is currently working in a special needs school ‘supporting an incredible class of young adults’ and will soon be starting a Master’s in Psychology which she will complete alongside her job.
When Amber-Rose talks about why she chose Herts she says, ‘the 3-year Primary Education course allows you to graduate with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). With most other courses, to achieve this, you would have to complete an extra PGCE year.
The programme is also highly ranked amongst other Primary Education courses, so it was an easy decision to make!’.
She looks back on the course and how it helped develop her teaching skills and adds, ‘The best thing about the Primary Education course was how practical it is. From investigating classroom crime-scenes to dissecting owl pellets, every session is memorable, fun and something you can just throw yourself into.’
‘This is quite hard, as there are so many to choose from. But I think my favourite memory would have to be the Education Society. I was a part of the committee with a few good friends of mine and putting together events for other people to enjoy during such a difficult time was really special.’
Amber-Rose is very much looking towards a career working with children and young people and says, ‘Whilst my original plans of being a teacher have changed, I still want to work with children and young adults. My goal is to move into the field of therapy or counselling in order to support our young people.’
