Ben (he/him), a keen rugby union player, started coaching after an injury. His enjoyment for coaching eventually led him to begin a Master of Teaching (Secondary) at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education. Discussing his thoughts on his experience in the course so far, Ben says, “What I find most rewarding is the real-life application of what I learn. Everything I learn has been tailored to be directly applied in a schooling setting. Whether I’m on placement, or even in a coaching setting, the skills and knowledge I have developed over this course have been directly transferrable.”
