Jan Gravell


A Career Change. 

Jan Gravell qualified as a mathematics teacher after deciding to change her career direction from banking.  Initially enrolled on the innovative Introduction to Secondary Teaching course, a popular choice for  career changers, she successfully progressed on to one of Newport’s two year accelerated BSc teacher training degree programmes.    On successful completion of the BSc Secondary Mathematics with ICT with Qualified Teacher Status Jan took up her first teaching  at Abersychan Secondary school, a school where she had undertaken one of her teaching practices.  Jan says about her change of career, “it’s a decision I have never regretted, I’ve been teaching mathematics at Abersychan Secondary School for five years now and while it’s the hardest job I have ever done, I find it really rewarding; it is challenging, no two days are ever the same and working alongside young people is an absolute privilege.”
