Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I was first introduced to teaching and training whilst working as a Paramedic in the National Ambulance Service of Ireland. As a qualified and experienced member of the service, I was directly involved in mentoring newly recruited members of staff and providing training as well as mentorship. It was during this time that I first developed a taste for teaching which was then further advanced as I developed my career further into the role of a Health and Safety Consultant in the private industry.

Through my experience in both of these roles, I developed a passion for teaching and experienced how personally rewarding it is to help those achieve the goals that they set out for themselves, whether these are for academic, personal or business purposes. It is these rewards that motivated me to follow teaching a full time career path. With my passion of Teaching coupled with my love of experiencing new cultures, learning new languages and foreign travel, I found my way into Teaching English as a Foreign Language.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

My vision as a teacher is not simply to deliver the curriculum to the students, nor is it to have students sit in the classroom and simply listen to the content of the lesson I am teaching, but to enlighten students as to the benefits of learning in general regardless of the topic being thought and the rewards that education brings in developing crucial life skills for their future.

I believe that all forms of education goes lengths to develop student`s soft-skills such as critical thinking, numerical and verbal reasoning, time-management skills and communication skills. I feel these skills are absolutely critical in young student`s personal development of becoming a well rounded, responsible and capable adult.

With this in mind, my teaching philosophy is to inspire, motivate, and infuse students with a genuine interest and appreciation for learning and to value education in its entirety for their own positive self development.

Dear Sir, Madam,

From 2011 to 2015, I worked as a Paramedic with the National Ambulance Service of Ireland before returning to
University in 2016 to further my education and complete a Postgraduate Degree in Occupational Health and Safety.
On completion of my Postgraduate studies, I took a career break to travel for a period of one year and whilst doing
so, developed a strong passion for language, communication and culture which inspired me to obtain a TEFL
qualification and turn this into my full-time career.

Whilst working with the National Ambulance Service of Ireland, I was directly involved in providing mentorship to
newly recruited Paramedic staff by way of offering encouragement, advice, tuition, and training on an ongoing
basis.

During my time as a Health and Safety Consultant, I was solely responsible for facilitating all training for both staff
and management and would provide classroom based training sessions for groups of between 15-40 people on a
daily basis. Many of the staff and management within the company were of a non-native English speaking
nationality and so I was assisted by a translator to ensure information was accurately conveyed.

In addition to my career experience to date, I have undertaken a 168 Hour TEFL qualification which is approved by
the DEAC (Distance Education Accrediting Commission, USA) and regulated by Ofqual (Office of Qualifications and
Examinations Regulation, UK). On completion of my TEFL qualification, I attended a 20 hour teaching practice
workshop where I was supervised and graded in Teaching English as Foreign Language by an experienced and
qualified CELTA teacher trainer.

I have taken a keen interest in the area of teaching and training, of which I find, personally very rewarding. I believe
I would make a great addition to your language school and welcome any further discussion or interview at your
convenience.

Yours Sincerely,
Noel Reid
