Marguerite Westacott

Marguerite has previously worked in a variety of diverse educational settings in a number of roles: teaching, leadership, counselling, consulting, curriculum development and governance. She has also worked and continues to volunteer in the community sector.

The majority of Marguerite's experience of teaching in schools, was in alternative education settings. The opportunity to teach in the Tertiary Preparation Pathway (TPP) was a natural progression for her, as when she taught in the secondary education environment, she actively promoted TPP as an 'alternative' means of entry to higher education. Now as a teacher in TPP, Marguerite is privileged to witness the transformation that takes place in students across the 13 weeks of the TPP semester and to see that TPP is more than an alternative, it really is the optimum way to experience higher education.
