Work Experience

Position


Job title: Catering Assistant
Employer: NHS
Date of employment: 2013- Present
Summary of role:

Throughout my time working in the NHS I have developed excellent communications skills with both patients, medical staff and fellow catering assistants. Communication is an important part of my job, both written and verbal, ensuring I remain approachable and well informed about patient’s needs and dietary requirements. I have enjoyed working as part of a team and I am able to communicate effectively in different environments. I support fellow colleagues in their job roles as well training new members of staff, which is a challenge I have enjoyed. In my job, I am required to take patients orders for lunch and dinner as well as ensuring that my working environment meets health and safety regulations. Here I have learned to work under pressure and remain focused on the task at hand. I have also learned to remain sympathetic to the patients as well as parents or caregivers. As this is a children’s hospital it is important to remain positive in spite of the situations you can be exposed to. As making Lunches and dinners for patients across a number of different wards it is important to work to a schedule to ensure everything is done efficiently and safely. Finally, it is my responsibility to make sure that the correct paper work for the days has been filled out correctly such as filling temperature and wastage sheets.

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

There is a number of reasons I would take part in this teach abroad programme. As a recent graduate who is looking to become a teacher in future I feel this would be the perfect way to gain some valuable experience. Being able to gain this experience in different culture from the one I am part would give me the exciting chance to grow and develop as an individual and to take on new challenges and take myself outside my comfort zone. South Korea would provide an exciting and beautiful backdrop to an exciting and rewarding experience. The South Korean culture is dynamic and boundary pushing from its approach to teaching, food, and fashion. I feel that teaching abroad would be a great to make new connections help change not only my own life for the better but students.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I feel I have the revenant skills and drive to experience something new and make a positive impact on pupils. Throughout my time not only in work and university but in volunteering I feel i have developed key skills in teaching. Throughout my time at university, I have not only gained a great appreciation for History and the Social Sciences but have also been able to develop my research and critical thinking skills. A large part of this degree program placed a major focus on group work and presentations. This is something that I will greatly benefit me throughout the PGDE course as well as in my teaching career as they have not only developed my presenting skills but also my communication skills. As part of my degree, I also got to take part in the Caledonian Club carrying out research on widening participation to higher and further education. This something I find particularly important, as part of this I got to give primary school pupils a tour around the university. This not only impacted my research skills but also developed my skills in interacting with young people and being patient which I feel are skills are all key teaching skills.
