Who is Kathryn Loveday? How did you first get involved in the creative industries?
I’m a creative individual who loves chinese food, Snowboarding and playing video games. I’ve always been arty growing up and originally was determined to be an Architect. I went to Blackburn college where I did a Btec and foundation in Art and Design but soon found that graphics was for me. So I went and studied Graphic Design at Degree level at Salford University.
We see you’re involved with teaching in university, How did this come about & how have you found things so far?
I’ve always thought about going into teaching but didn’t know if it was for me or not and knew I wouldn’t know until I tried it. Then an opportunity came up at Salford University in the September after I graduated to help out and run some workshops with college students that were coming in to have a taster day at the uni. So I signed up, the workshops ran for 3 days and I loved it. After christmas I was making the most of free time by doing placements in agencies and as one was about to finish I had nothing lined up so emailed my 3rd year tutor Tash asking if she fancied my help in the classroom and she jumped at the opportunity. I love it so much, I get such a kick out of helping the students and it’s nice to be looked up too. Hopefully next year i can afford to do my PGCE and in time teach properly.
