Gary, Change Programme Manager, Department for Education

What does your current job involve?

I specialise in Education Change Management. I manage the corporate change programme at the Department for Education, this means designing a programme of corporate service change activities that ensure the strategic vision of the government can be implemented effectively.

Why did you choose a career in education?

I wanted to work in a sector that made a clear difference to people's lives.

My advice to others would be to research the world of education fully. Learn about project management, plan effectively and explore your options as a PGCE can lead you into a variety of different career paths.

What’s the best thing about teaching?

Personally, the opportunity to visit new places - seeing the Vatican for the first time on a school trip was fantastic.
