Welcome to Back to School, a mini series from The Sizzle Podcast.Back to School episodes see guests take a time machine trip back to their experiences of education. We discuss memories from primary school (4-11 years), secondary school (11-16 years) and 16+ years. Then we think about how these experiences might have shaped guest’s views on education and the workplace.In this episode, I talk with Bukky Yusuf.

She is a currently a Deputy Head teacher in a specialist school, as well as a teacher trainer, Consultant and Qualified Coach.We discussed a lot, including the following themes:
