Introducing the New Pastoral Team within the Carnegie School of Education

University study is never easy and study in a School of Education can be especially challenging. And so, to ensure all of our students receive the very best support during their time with us, I’m delighted to formally introduce our new Pastoral Team. Highly trained in everything from managing anxiety to finance, from wellbeing to bereavement, our team acts as a first line of support, bringing a broad range of expertise and lived experience to ensure that students experiencing difficulties not only complete their studies, they excel.

Still learning after all these years

Jan Linsley is about to retire from full-time work and in this blogpost she reflects on how she became a teacher and how belonging to the profession has opened up many doors and opportunities for making a difference throughout her career.  Jan attended Leeds Polytechnic, which later became Leeds Metropolitan University and then Leeds Beckett University. Jan and her contemporaries are thus part of a vital and proud tradition of Carnegie Educators.
