Born in Manchester, I am the first-generation of my family to go to college and university. Whilst at school, I was brought up in a council house which my mum kept as clean as a new pin for the family, writes Professor Vicky Duckworth.
I earned a wage from the age of 13 at the local supermarket cafe on a Thursday and Friday evening, and all day Saturday. It was a step up from my paper round! I loved work and earning a wage that I’d treat my mum with.
At 16 I left behind the local comprehensive school where I’d spend most of the day staring out at the clueless sky. I couldn’t wait to be grown up, working and earning full-time. Without any qualifications I went from the school’s redbrick to the redbrick of the local factory on a Youth Training Scheme (YTS).
