Lincoln graduate is top of the class


When Stuart Moody, Media Production, 2002, came to the University in 1999, he started his journey on the path to a successful career in teaching. Since graduating, through hard work, dedication and a drive to succeed, Stuart has risen swiftly through the ranks and is now the head teacher of Ranskill Primary School in Nottinghamshire. 

Stuart studied Media Production at Lincoln, a course that he has fond memories of, and a course that has undoubtedly helped provide a range of skills which Stuart has been able to apply within an educational role.

“The best aspects were the practical elements of the course, I loved exploring the radio and television studio and being creative at the same time,” said Stuart.

Highlights of Stuart’s degree included a project which involved working closely with a local secondary school, a project that combined aspects of media production with education, laying the foundations of Stuart’s transition into teaching.


“A particular highlight was taking part in a research and development project which involved working with students from a nearby secondary school and helping them to produce their own Saturday breakfast show. This was broadcast on the University based community radio station Siren FM,” said Stuart.

Stuart’s rise through the ranks into a senior teaching position has been swift, and he is keen to acknowledge the University’s role in helping him to launch the career that he has had.

“It is the wealth of experiences both during and since my degree that have enabled me to become a head teacher within 11 years of obtaining my qualifications.”

Stuart feels that the experience and training gained during his Media Production course provided him with a strong skillset that enabled him to secure the important training required to progress into a teaching career.

"My time at Lincoln provided me with lots of transferable skills from a practical aspect but also a firm grounding in the theory that helped me to secure a place on a PGCE course, and furthermore, I have been able to use the skills and knowledge to help teach the statutory national curriculum.”

Stuart says that his lasting memories of the University of Lincoln will always be the rapid developments that occurred on campus during his time here between 1999 and 2002. Stuart was very much part of a University that was growing, and is continuing to go from strength to strength today.
