After graduating, Claire Wolfe embarked on a successful and exciting career in journalism with roles including senior news editor on a daily regional publication, lifestyle and travel magazine work and experience as a freelance on a national newspaper and TV station. During this time, she was responsible for supervising the training of new recruits so moving into teaching was a natural progression. She has been driven by the challenge to develop courses that meet high academic and industry needs while providing students with an outstanding experience. Helping to nurture talented young people and helping them to get their first foot on the career ladder has been a huge motivation for Claire and something she believes the whole journalism team at the University of Worcester can feel proud of.
Claire liaises with the growing and highly skilled alumni through a ‘buddy scheme’ and various Social Media outlets to maximise the support we can provide for our students on graduating.
