Miss Nichola Graham

Why did you choose to come to the UTC?

I chose to come and teach at UTC as it is a new and exciting innovative professional development space which enables students to excel. With my background in clinical and health psychology and health and social care I was excited to get stuck into the ethos of ‘every day is in an interview’ and have the opportunity to teach the young minds of today.

Why did you choose to teach the subject you teach?

I chose to teach health and social care as it is a rewarding career path for people to enter into. It teaches various transferable skills and provides learners with a lot of fun and fascinating experiences which they can reflect on later on in their professional career.

What are you looking forward to most of working here?

The health suite is an excellent working space which I will make use of during my classes to enable learners to gain hands-on experience which they would not get if they were simply classroom based. I am looking forward to gaining training in SimMan.

What are your interests outside of the classroom?

I like to travel to various different countries around the world.

Why did you choose to come to the UTC?

I chose to come to the UTC because of its commitment to improving the lives of young people. We can make a huge difference in the lives of our students and guarantee them a more successful future.


Why did you choose to teach the subject you teach?

Being an English teacher is the best job in the world. English is an immensely enjoyable subject to teach, besides being one which is vital for students success in further education or the world of work. I enjoy inspiring students with great literature and watching their skills and confidence grow with their own written work.

What are you looking forward to most of working here?

I’m looking forward to teaching at the UTC because of the facilities, the chance to work in an inspiring team and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the students here.

What are your interests outside of the classroom?

Outside of work, I am an avid reader and writer, currently working on a children’s book and a collection of short stories.

Why did you choose to come to the UTC?

I moved here from Buckinghamshire and I chose the UTC because I have a real respect for its ethos of inclusion and social mobility. I was also really excited by the idea of its project based learning.

Why did you choose to teach the subject you teach?

I teach triple sciences and I believe nothing describes the beauty of the world quite like science. Through what I teach, we’re able to see the interconnectedness of the environment.

What are you looking forward to most of working here?

The freedom of thought involved for the pupils during Project-based learning. It’s so exciting to see them able to design their own projects.

What are your interests outside of the classroom?
I enjoy walking on the beach with my family and my dogs.
