Work Experience

Position


Job title: Clinical Psychologist
Employer: National Health Service
Date of employment: October 2015 – Present
Summary of role:

Working as a qualified Clinical Psychologist in various health settings including hospitals and the community.

My job includes planning client sessions, each of which last around one hour, and requires preparation of appropriate materials.

Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I love working with children and would love the chance to build on and develop my teaching skills. I also love travelling and learning about new cultures and traditions. I have travelled to South Korea in 2018 and love the culture, the people, and the food. It is my goal to live in South Korea and teach English to children and young people.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I have experience in teaching and training throughout my career to date. I have provided formal teaching lessons on topics such as well-being and positive mental health. This has provided me with good experience of preparing for and delivering teaching in a classroom environment to large groups of students.

My job as a Clinical Psychologist has required me to plan formal sessions to use with my clients. These include clear aims, goals and homework setting, much like a lesson plan. My current job requires clear communication skills and concept checking which are highly transferable skills to classroom teaching.

I also have a wealth of experience working with children and young people. I am able to engage children and make concepts interesting and relevant to them to ensure they are motivated to learn. I worked as a classroom assistant for one year with children aged 9-10 years old assisting with providing lessons and keeping them engaged in their learning. I genuinely enjoy working with young people and I am excited to build on my experience through teaching.
