Caitlin Noon

Childcare and Education

View Course

It was great to engage and educate the children by teaching small groups and reading to the class as a whole.

Caitlin is determined to be a primary school teacher and help to shape young lives.

After completing her GCSEs at West Craven High School, Barnoldswick, Caitlin chose to study at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre as she found the Tutors so welcoming and supportive when she visited for an Open Event.

She earned A* in her Advanced Level Childcare and Early Years course and is now reading Primary Teaching at Edge Hill University. She plans to become a Primary School Teacher on completion of her degree, helping children at an essential time of their lives, developing and learning about the world around them one step at a time.

Childcare and Education

During her time at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre, Caitlin took part in work placements in different early years settings and primary schools, as well as visiting children’s museum Eureka to learn about play and the University of Cumbria and Edge Hill University to discover more about studying Education at degree level.  Caitlin enjoyed a presentation on Special Education Needs and then worked with children from a local SEN school on planning and facilitating activities for them; learnt about children’s mental health issues from Chris Duke, author of Lucy’s Blue Day and discovered more about domestic abuse on its impact on children from a representative from Brighter Lives charity.
