I’ve done this to change my career. I never wanted to go back to pubs and bars! I’d love to stay on with the Open Justice Centre, or to help people in some capacity, perhaps with Citizen’s Advice or in HR or contract law.
I’d also like to be an Associate Lecturer with the OU … and I’m now considering doing an OU Master’s Degree too. Watch this space!

My tutors really inspired me during my studies as they championed people sharing ideas and values.
It enabled great discussion, whilst building everyone’s confidence and realising that different backgrounds just means different experiences, and that we should embrace our differences and utilise these for the greater good and our own personal development.
