Daughter inspires ambulance driver to go to university
A mature student tells his story of combining ambulance driving with a course in history
Parents are frequently inspired by their children, but it’s not often that they follow in their educational footsteps like I did. My daughter inspired me to go and pursue a degree at university – something I never thought was possible at 52 years old.
I left school at 16 without any qualifications and went straight into full-time employment. Born to working-class parents in London, I started work at a newspaper wholesaler company and subsequently had several driving jobs; from vans, to lorries, to being a London taxi driver.
