Joanne Drysdale

  • Newly Qualified Teacher at East Crompton St George’s Primary School
  • Foundation Degree in Early Years

When Joanne joined our University Centre as a mature student, she found herself on the fast-track to her dream career.

At the time she was a teaching assistant, but the part-time nature of the course allowed Joanne the opportunity to fit the qualification around her personal and professional life.

The supportive nature of the course gave Joanne the skills and confidence to go on to complete further study and she’s now got the job she always wanted.

“It’s never to late to achieve your dream! I was a mature student and Hopwood supported and encouraged me to pursue my dream and achieve it”
