Work Experience

Position


Job title: Student Teacher
Employer: Durham University
Date of employment: May 2019 – June 2019
Summary of role:

In this position I was the teacher of a class of KS1 children aged 5/6. I was responsible for the class in numerous ways from the teaching they received to taking the register and running after school clubs. I taught 80% of all lessons across the range of the England/Wales curriculum from core subjects such as English, Maths, and Science, to foundation subjects like Computing, Art, and Music.

Position


Job title: Student Teacher
Employer: Durham University
Date of employment: November 2018 – February 2019
Summary of role:

In this position I was the teacher of a class of KS2 children aged 7/8. I was responsible for teaching the class and providing support to the class teacher during lessons I did not deliver. I taught 40 – 70% of all timetabled lessons during this time. These included core subjects like English, Maths, and Science, as well as foundation subjects like Art, History, and Geography. I was able to attend parents evenings and support the facility during charity events during my time in this school.

Position


Job title: Volunteer
Employer: Friends of Early Support
Date of employment: March 2009 – Ongoing
Summary of role:

I have long been a member of this charity and have supported them in numerous capacities over this time. The charity works through a local nursery to support children aged 0 – 5 who have additional educational and developmental needs. I have volunteered for sponsored events, supervised sponsored walks and fund-raising efforts, and worked in the nursery alongside children and their parents in either a support giving role or as an assistant to other staff. It is over this time that I have been able to develop interpersonal skills and build relationships with these families and the students who the charity supports.

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I want to teach overseas because I think it would be a very rewarding experience. I have spent time as an educator and found it enjoyable. I would like to use those skills to support children and teenagers through their education. Learning the English language has become an important element of working and living in an interconnected world, but it is often overlooked the sheer amount of effort and time devoted to the learning process. The children and teenagers who are expected to master English as a second or third language have a great deal of skills and flare, and it is this I wish to support.

I want to help children develop those skills and become confident in the incredible ability they possess. I want to support them and help build a framework they can use to further their own learning and become independent learners.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I am a suitable candidate because I am passionate about learning and education. I spend much of my time developing myself as a well-rounded practitioner. Whether that is through hobbies, such as art and music, or through time in formal education, I am always working to build my portfolio of knowledge and broaden my skillset. I have a passion for languages. I am currently working towards a JLPT N5 qualification but have spent time learning Korean, Danish, and German. It is this love for learning that I hope to pass on to my pupils. I have spent time in Korea and Japan in the past and would relish the opportunity to live amongst different cultures to my native culture and build my understanding of the rich and varied histories of different countries. If accepted, I would look forward to immersing myself in these cultures and developing my skills as an educator at the same time.
