Learners Life Long VocationAspiring teacher, Gill Neal, has set out on a quest to achieve her life-long career dream almost 20-years after leaving her teacher training at university.

The 41-year-old adult learner from Dovecot, Liverpool, enrolled at St Helens College in a bid to finally gain the qualification she needed in order to teach.

The former Nursery Nurse and St Helens Council volunteer decided to join the 'Award in Education and Training', a course ideal for those wishing to enter teaching or training in the Lifelong Learning Sector.

Gill, a former Broughton Hall High School pupil, said, "I thoroughly enjoyed my studies at the college and it is brilliant to be finally graduating almost 20 years after initially studying teacher training at university. I managed to balance a busy home life with my studies, and I certainly feel like my hard work and dedication has finally paid off.

I have received a lot of support since enrolling and I'm delighted at my decision to return to education. It has provided me with a platform into teaching, something I have always longed to do. I would really recommend the course and the college – I have had an excellent experience and now have a whole host of opportunities thanks to the programme."

Gill is now looking forward to graduating this year after her 20-year wait and beginning a new career in the teaching sector.
