Have you seen Manchester Nexus’ own Anna in Oldham?

NCTL launch a new campaign to attract more people to the teaching profession in Oldham and one of the stars of the new campaign is our own Anna Nelson, Initial Teacher Education Lead at The Blue Coat School. She is joined by Blue Coat (our lead school) Computer Science teacher, Andrew Mkandawire.

The major new print and online campaign from the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) has been launched with the specific aim of attracting more teachers to the profession.

The multi-media campaign focuses on Oldham, Scarborough and Blackpool, each identified as an area needing more trainee and graduating teachers.

Anna has been selected for the campaign because she works tirelessly to ensure that training and support all trainees receive is high quality and tailored to the individual.  Anna leads the training for the teacher trainees based at schools in the North Manchester area and is an important part of the Manchester Nexus team

Both Anna’s and Andrew’s photos will now form part of the marketing material that will be seen around the Greater Manchester area.

So how does Anna  feel about being part of such an important campaign?

“I was really happy to represent teaching, teacher training and the area – the north of England. It made me reflect on my career, how much I’ve learnt and how far I’ve come. It reminded me of the moral purpose – teaching is such an important job and so rewarding. My friends found the idea of my face on a bus hilarious!”
