Emma's CV

Emma Postlethwaite (maiden name Emma Dover)


Summary/Overview

After gaining a PGCE Intergrated Science (Chemistry) in 1994, I took on a job teaching Chemistry in a private School (11 – 16) in Kuwait. On my return, a year later, I was employed as a Chemistry Lecturer by Truro College. At this time I had no experience of teaching A-level, this however, did not hold me back. Two years later I became Head of Chemistry then on to Deputy Team Leader for the Science Department. In 2008, I left to start a medical Degree with Peninsula School of Medicine. During my time at Peninsula Medical School I had three children and decided to concentrate efforts on their upbringing rather than my own career.
Since that time I have been re employed by Truro College sports department on a part-time basis as well as Teaching Fitness classes at Penzance Leisure Centre and running my own private tuition and yoga businesses. Now all my children are at school I find my self a position where I would like to reignite my teaching career.
