Student Profile(s)

Robert Abraham

2014 PGCE Chemistry graduate Robert Abraham says: “Science is a key aspect of everyday life and therefore understanding of this subject is vital to modern life.” He describes spending time in the classroom with pupils on teaching placements as the highlight of the course. He has received support from both his university tutor and school mentor to help him negotiate the course. “Both my mentors have been vital in getting me this far.”

Robert has also gained experience of being involved in a school parents’ evening, providing him with “a good insight into pupil’s home life”. His other main extra-curricular activity is slightly more unusual, but has proved equally beneficial. “I have run a martial arts class, which allowed me to develop a closer relationship with pupils. - Robert Abraham, PGCE Chemistry
