Journeys into teaching
A collection of learning journeys written by student teachers at Edge Hill University. Their learning journeys have not always followed a conventional path, with many of the students having to overcome significant barriers along the way. Typically, the writing conveys a passion to teach and, because of their personal experiences, displays an understanding of the issues faced by students from a variety of backgrounds. Stories are interspersed with quotations from teachers and lecturers from a wide range of teaching environments.
The book is intended to inspire many more people from diverse backgrounds to join the teaching profession.

The book is great. I love all the quotes. Very moving.
The stories and histories collected in this volume reflect the richness and variety that is to be found within the PCET sector. Perhaps the most striking theme to emerge is the sense of commitment to their profession, and to their own professional learning and education that the teachers in these stories embody. This book fulfils an important role, in allowing teachers from the PCET sector to talk about why they do what they do, and what it means for them, for their families, and for the students with whom they work. Reading this book is uplifting, and it deserves to be read widely.
