Work Experience

Position


Job title: Volunteer
Employer: St Killian’s GAA
Date of employment: 2012 – 2016
Summary of role:

Originally I began volunteering with the under 8’s football team, assisting the coaches in creating new games for the children and managing them at sporting events. After a year I began assisting other underage teams, managing children aged between 4 and 12 years old and even assisted the creation of the St Killian’s GAA Summer Camp. In terms of the summer camp, I contributed ideas on how to keep the camp fun for the children, creating a plan for each day of the camp including a time scale and assisted coaches throughout the event for 4 years. My time as a volunteer came to an end as my workload during university increased and I began placement in Belfast.

Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

As a recent graduate who has always lived in Northern Ireland, the possibility of teaching in an extraordinary country such as South Korea is a once in a life time opportunity to experience a new way of life and to make a difference to a child’s future. Travelling and meeting new people has been something which I have always enjoyed due to my outgoing personality. I believe this has encouraged me to be confident in myself and also in my ability to integrate and communicate with both my own community and other cultures, something which I hope to embrace in South Korea and to the classes I will teach.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

The important attitude to education in South Korea is one which I truly respect and relate to; I have been a volunteer tutor for 8 years helping the children locally with English and basic mathematics. I have also contributed towards creating football activities and games for children to become more involved in their community. I believe it is important to make education fun for children to help them maintain an interest and benefit them in the future. Through teaching English in Korea children are given the chance to learn the third most popular language in the world, which can benefit them socially and increase their employability throughout the world. My experience thus far working with children has been mainly volunteering as I have always wanted to help the younger generation improve their education and just the generally enjoy their youth more.
