Nadia Redfern - Teacher of Environmental Science
I have had a passion for the subject I teach, Environmental Science, since I took my BSc. Hons. in Environmental Conservation before spending over 20 years in various commercial and corporate industry positions. I mainly worked as a Technical Environmental Management Consultant in the offshore oil and gas industry before undertaking various other commercial roles across my career.
With a personal love of learning, I continued to attain an MSc. in Science Communication from Imperial College before fully embarking on my teaching career. Initially, I retrained attaining an International Diploma as a pre-school Montessori Practitioner and very much enjoyed working with pre school children. Fulfilling a desire to teach in the secondary and further education settings, I embarked on my PGCE, University of Sussex in 2021, that I find hugely rewarding.
I feel it is a huge privilege to work with and teach our young generation here at Haywards Heath College, to prepare them for not only academic success but also encompass and develop further life skills. Environmental Science is a hugely diverse, interdisciplinary subject and is top of the agenda regarding many critical issues and challenges we face with our environment today and for the future. I aspire to educate, inspire and offer my students an excellent learning opportunity and to believe in themselves and their potential.
