Twin sister graduates land dream jobs at same UK school

Published: Tuesday, 19 January 2016   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

A pair of twin graduates from Birmingham City University have landed dream teaching positions at the same school in the city.

Sanya and Anneka, who will be starting their roles at Adderley Primary School in Saltley, have only just qualified from university.

Original from Bangladesh, the twin sisters have lived in Yardley in Birmingham for most of their lives. However, this isn’t the first time they have worked together. In fact, the pair have helped each other secure a degree by swapping tips and sharing ideas from both University and work experience. 

“We’ve always been very close and although we were in different groups on our university course, we still helped each other out a lot and then when we went on placements at different schools, we were able to compare ideas and experiences,” said Anneka.

Having decided to follow a career in teaching, they proceeded to join the Early Years course at college. They then went on to study for a degree in Primary Education at Birmingham City University, which they both passed with flying colours. They are now using their skills in the real world and will shortly be helping children to achieve their goals and aspirations.

“We both applied for positions at the same school and thought if one of us gets it we’d be pleased. We didn’t expect to get roles at the same school but we’re so happy to stay together and we are delighted to be graduating this week and accomplishing this major milestone together. It seems that we are inseparable!’ added Sanya.

This is a dream come true for the sisters, both of whom are extremely excited to start their careers in teaching.
