Members of staff from Coleg Cambria have recently had their work published by the Education Workforce Council (EWC).

Rachel Whitton and Nikki Lawrence have both seen their work published by EWC.  Rachel who works within the Learning & Development Team and Nikki within the Work based Learning Team at the college have both worked hard to achieve their MA in Education.  Rachel’s final year of studying saw her write a dissertation examining the role of mentors to support trainee teachers within Further Education, whilst Nikki explored if assessors are equipped to deal with learners’ personal issues and if they use counselling skills in their practice.

Both who recently graduated were overjoyed to see their work published, Rachel said:

“It’s been a great work related experience, but I am relieved it is now completed.  It has been hard work, but worth it to see our work published. I am currently working with John Luker at Glyndwr University to hopefully convert my work into an academic journal article.”

“While it has been hard work I have really enjoyed it and feel that I have learnt a lot” added Nikki.

“Rachel has been a great support and I am really proud of what we have both achieved. I am looking forward to having my work published on the EWC website and I am hoping to work with my supervisor at Glyndwr University to publish my work as an academic article.”
