Michelle Codrington-Rogers leads teachers' union

Alumna Michelle Codrington-Rogers (PGCE Citizenship, 2005) has recently taken up the office of President of NASUWT, the Teachers' Union. She is the first black president in the 101 year history of the organisation.

She represented the Union at the UN as part of the Education International Delegation for the UN Commission on the Status of Women, and as part of the NASUWT delegation to Education International's World Congress in Bangkok, both in 2019.

Michelle lives in Oxfordshire with her daughter and teaches citizenship at the Cherwell School, as well as advocating for decolonisation of the curriculum and helping young people find their voices.

She offered these inspiring words to students and new graduates: "Don't ever let anyone tell you that your voice doesn't matter or should be tempered. If you truly believe in something and it can make an impact and move our society forward, then shout from the highest rooftops or in an empty room. You will be heard."
