About Jacqueline Banks

In my role as lecturer, I teach a range of modules at the Centre for Foundation Studies. I have worked in education for more than 20 years, starting out in a high school teaching students aged 11 to 18 in a range of subjects, including humanities, childcare, and health and social care, before progressing to a career in further education.

I taught at a college of further education for more than 10 years, guiding students towards a variety of careers in the health and social care sector. This pastoral element of the role was something I greatly enjoyed, as I find it highly rewarding to help young, talented people reach their fullest potential. From here, I went on to teach in higher education for a further six years, where I had the opportunity utilise the knowledge and understanding I gained from my broad background in education, to students studying childhood studies and health and social care degrees.

I am passionate about education, both practising and administering it, I have a degree in History and Social Sciences, a Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) and a Master’s degree in Education, and a wealth of empirical experience supporting students to develop the required skills for their chosen profession.
