Student Experience

The Student Experience Team: Cheryl and Sally

Introducing the Education Studies Student Experience Team! Cheryl Cane is the Department’s Director of Student Experience and her colleague, Sally Blakeman, is the Student Engagement and Experience Officer. You will see lots of us during the year! Please take a few minutes to watch our welcome video.


There are lots of events that you can attend at Warwick to develop your skills and knowledge. Firstly, you will be invited to a number of sessions specifically for PGR students and delivered by experts from Warwick – look out for Library and Careers sessions in Term 1. There is also a broad range of sessions which are open to all students in our Education Studies community, including weekly Spotlight sessions, as well as social events. We will tell you more about this during induction and will give you regular updates throughout the year. If you have not already done so, follow us on Instagram at warwick_education to be sure to hear about everything that is happening.

Opportunities to get involved in the Department of Education Studies and meet people

There are so many ways you can become involved and develop your experience in areas such as leadership and decision-making. Here are just a few of the things you can join:

  • PGR Student-Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC).
  • Education Studies Research Conference organising committee.
  • Education Studies Careers in Education Conference organising committee.
  • Education Studies Panel: students and staff discuss key subjects and work together to introduce new ideas and make positive changes.

In Education Studies we are very lucky to have Kella the two-year-old Cockapoo who has an important student and staff wellbeing role that she takes very seriously! Kella has been part of the Department since she was a small puppy and can often be seen on campus with her owner, the Director of Education, Sarah Dahl. Kella’s an enthusiastic member of the team, bringing lots of fun and energy!
