Kirsty - English Language and Linguistics
I've learnt lots of new skills
“I worked as an internal writer at ZigZag Education: an educational publishing company, specialising in classroom resources for GCSE and A Level students. I’m the first internal English Language writer at ZigZag - I had to work with the editor to make sure resources met the specifications for exams."
“This internship is relevant to my degree and has shown that I am knowledgeable in the subject, and I am eager to work in an area that uses my degree.”
“I’ve learned lots of skills – like time management and independent working – which will be a real benefit in the future. I would definitely consider a career in publishing.”
ZigZag were looking for strong subject knowledge
Commenting on Kirsty's internship, Rachel Lawrence, Senior Editor and Business Development Manager, ZigZag Education, stated:
“We were looking to develop a new area of the business, and were looking for someone with strong subject knowledge in English Language.
“Kirsty worked on developing products within the English Language range of Educational Teaching Resources.”
And the products have had great feedback:
"This is a fantastic resource that could be used with groups of really high ability down to those of lower ability."
