Student Profile(s)


Jerome is a Year 6 teacher and Key Stage 2 Coordinator at St Andrews (Sathorn) International School in Bangkok. Originally from London, he spent a few years teaching at a Primary School in South London before he got itchy feet, went to New Zealand and then ended up in a teaching job at a great school in Bangkok.

Whilst still teaching his Year 6 students, Jerome was asked by his Head if he was interested in applying for an MA to compliment his leadership role. Although initially apprehensive about the idea of juggling work, family and studies, Jerome was recommended to look into the MA Leadership and Management at the University of Derby Online Learning by a friend in a similar situation. After some deliberation, he finally applied for the course and started his studies alongside his teaching role.

"The UDOL course is ideal for someone in my position because you can do just about everything through your laptop wherever there is WIFI. Units are broken down into weekly chunks and all of the reading materials, forums and activities are online which helps you to organize your studies around your other life commitments.

"What I’m enjoying most is having the opportunity to meet and collaborate online with a range of other aspiring leaders from all over the world, tying the theory we are covering to our own work contexts. Despite the initial apprehension, I’m really happy I have taken the plunge - it is making me a more reflective leader and hopefully a more effective one."
