I started work at the Lifelong Learning Centre (LLC) as the Arts, Humanities and Academic Skills Tutor in January. Having now been here a few months, I feel that I’ve settled in and have a fairly good sense of what the LLC is all about. I’ve had similar jobs at other universities, but have been very impressed with the work that the LLC does in supporting students from a wide variety of backgrounds. The LLC is genuinely student-focused in its approach and staff are committed to the progress of the students. What I particularly like is the friendliness and approachability of my colleagues; something that I’m sure that the students who use the LLC appreciate too!

I’ve also been delighted to have the chance to work with a wonderful range of students since starting here, whose commitment to their education is inspirational. It really has made my job worthwhile to see the progress that some students have made, even in the short time that I’ve known them. This really goes to show that hard work and commitment can pay off, and that university can be of benefit and indeed can benefit from a diverse student population.

Based on my experiences so far I’m very much looking forward to the new Arts and Humanities with Foundation Year programme starting in September, and can assure all prospective students that they’ll be joining a Centre, and an institution, that really cares about its students.
