Leah Holmes, from Guisborough, originally wanted to become a midwife, but after completing work experience as a teaching assistant, an interest in primary education was sparked.
“I changed my plans and now want to work in primary education,” explains Leah, who has earned a Merit in her Health T Level at Middlesbrough College. Although health was the main focus of Leah’s course, the skills she has learned are all transferable into the working environment.
“Doing T Levels at Middlesbrough College has been the best experience for me. I’ve realised what’s out there, my passions, and that I have the flexibility to change my career path.”
As a result, Leah is now set to study Primary Education at Teesside University, which will include Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
