Claire WolfeA national body which champions teaching excellence has honoured a former regional journalist.

Claire Wolfe, principal lecturer in journalism at the University of Worcester, has been accepted as a senior fellow of the Higher Education Academy, an organisation which shares teaching strategies and practice across the UK.

Claire, pictured, began her career in weekly newspapers before moving to the Birmingham Post and Mail.

She subsequently worked as women’s page editor, news editor and night editor on the Daily News, and has also had spells at the Sunday Mirror and Central News.

Claire is now in her 10th year at the University of Worcester.

She said: “I feel honoured to be accepted as a senior fellow of the academy and will continue to aim high and to inspire students and staff alike through example.

“A hallmark of the course is to help young people develop their talents and to have a range of knowledge and skills that enable them to enter a range of professions including journalism, social media management, PR and communications and copywriting.”
