STUDENT STORY Sarah Hurley MAR, has just completed a teacher training programme. Sarah qualified as a reflexologist in 1998 and has worked in private practice and in a hospital environment attached to a palliative care team for nine years. Throughout this time she has continued her professional development with a number of postgraduate courses. Most recently she has completed a teacher training qualification at the Macbeth Centre. Sarah said
“I now have more confidence in my delivery and have gained an underpinning on the theory behind teaching. This has reinforced my passion for teaching my subject and has helped me to explore and experiment with a variety of delivery methods, activities and resources... I can now instil in my students the value of peer assessments and self evaluation, to promote their learning and to encourage self development. I believe my communications skills have improved and my ability to assess student needs has developed throughout this course.
The course covers many areas and has given me the structure I believe I needed to make my teaching experience and that of the students more fulfilling.”

Don't be shy, say hello. We'd love to hear from you.
