Artist in Residence
We were pleased to welcome back ex-student and recent graduate Michaela Washington-Welch back to CTK to work as Artist In Residence as part of Nottingham Trent University’s Graduate Scheme Programme.
Michaela very quickly became part of the team and impressed everyone with her energy and enthusiasm. The staff and students were very sorry to see her go once her six week residency ended. Michaela will make a great teacher in the future and we wish her all the best with her training.
Michaela had the following to say:
“After completing my A levels at Christ the King Emmanuel in June 2014, I went on to Nottingham Trent University, to study Interior Architecture and Design. Subsequent to graduating in June 2017 I was fortunate enough to participate in a six week Graduate Scheme Programme sponsored by Nottingham Trent, where I returned to Christ the King to work alongside the teachers who had taught me. The experience was amazing. I learned so much about the work that teachers do in order to support and inspire all their students. I enjoyed a interacting with the students in different lessons such as Art and Philosophy. It was really interesting to see things from the perspective of a teacher and not a student. I am so glad that I chose to do my placement at Christ the King. The students and staff were all amazing. I can’t wait to come back as a qualified teacher. ”
