What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?
I was unsure what I wanted for a career whilst at school so I tried to keep my choices open.
I took A levels in Economics,Geography and History. I did not have a gameplan at that stage and it seems strange that I have ended up in what is perceived as a Science Centre without studying pure science at A level.
I suppose the standard advice is to think carefully about your career early on and think about how doors can be closed by not choosing the appropriate subjects. Easy if you know what you want at an early age! I didn't.
What is your education to date?
A Level Economics, Geography, History
Postgraduate Certificate in Education Management Qualifacation from ILM
What aspects of your education have proven most important for your job?
My education qualification opened doors for me.
Have you undertaken, or do you plan to undertake any further training as part of your job?
We get continual training in work. Risk assessment, Child Protection, Fire Warden and First Aid are a few of the standard elements.
I would like to learn some new music and film editing software.
