Warwick's influence on Whitleigh's career

"Currently I work as a Senior Technical Lead for HCL attached to Deutsche Bank (DB). It’s an exciting job as my workstream deals with authentication and end user computing for DB. Since Cloud is the way of the future, I find this extremely relevant to the tech world we are living in. Everything is now being stored in the cloud or having back up in the cloud. I have also released my second volume of short stories titled Son of The Soil and Other Stories, which can be purchased from Amazon."

Baking up a success

An education at Warwick doesn't just set you up for a particular career path, some alumni find their passions outside of the lecture theatre. Immi Kelly (BA Education Studies, 2020) discovered her love of baking while looking for a distraction during lockdown when she was studying for her exams. Her skill and passion for baking soon led her to set up Immi Bakes, which she runs full time and is currently in the process of baking 22,000 cookies for Telford's Polar Express.

Promoting education through the arts

Professor Mohammed Al-Amri (MA Art and Design Education, 1999) can look back fondly on his time at Warwick. Building on his Bachelor of Education and Postgraduate Diploma from Sultan Qaboos University and Helwan University respectively, he reflects on his highlights from his time as a Master’s student on campus.

"I was in the first 3 year training course to go through Canley in the Sixties. Really loved it and moved down to London to teach for two years before marrying and moving down to Sussex. Even starting a family did not prevent me from teaching and I gradually worked up the promotion ladder to become a Primary Head in Lewes in East Sussex. After seven years in post I applied for a Primary Head position at the British School of Kuwait and worked there for four years before moving to a similar position in Fujairah in the UAE. I finished my teaching career there before retiring and returning to Sussex. I have loved every minute of my teaching!"

"What I really miss is the campus. I have had a wonderful time there walking around and feeding the ducks. Wandering in the nearby woods is also something I liked most; in the evening I used to attend movies and events at the theatre."
