Ben Lofthouse

  • Position: Newly Qualified Teacher
  • Location: London, UK

My name is Ben Lofthouse and I have recently completed a PGCE course in Religious Education (RE) at UCL Institute of Education. I decided to become an RE teacher as it is a role that allows you to engage with, and challenge, students. 

This specific teaching role helps to develop students' knowledge and understanding of different religions, and it allows them to develop new ways to think about the big questions about life - and engage with different philosophies.

I am looking forward to starting my teaching career and to engaging students in the subject of Religious Education; giving them the opportunity to debate and discuss the issues which the subject raises.
