Still Looking For A Teaching Job? Follow This Checklist

Still Looking For A Teaching Job? Follow This Checklist

Teaching is the dream profession of many young graduates. It gives them a chance to be heard and share their knowledge with others. It’s a great profession for those who have leadership skills and want to be social. If you have applied to a number of teaching positions and still haven’t become successful, here’s a checklist for you: Consider moving Instead of limiting your job search to your neighboring schools and colleges, send the applications to big schools even if they are far away. If you get selected, you can always move to another city. After all, a job at a premiere college or school will be a great move for your career. Get your paperwork ready Make sure you have your resume, cover letter, and other documents ready. Proofread your resume several times to make sure it does not have any mistakes. Be available on social networks Your presence on social media networks like LinkedIn can help you build connections. If you are connected to administrators from colleges and schools, there are chances that they will prefer you over others when it’s time to hire. Attend job fairs Attend the job fairs held at your alma mater along with those at the neighboring colleges and universities. You have better chances of being selected at your alma mater than the others. Prepare for the interview There are some questions that are asked frequently. For example, “what can you bring to this school” and “how do you plan to influence the students”. Come up with witty and professional answers for these questions. Share vignettes Be open during the interview and share some positive vignettes about your previous experiences. These could include student achievements, classroom management, and unique teaching methodologies that you follow. Follow-up Sometimes the college or school might take extra time in hiring. If you follow up using emails, there are higher chances of you being hired. When you email them, state again that you would love to work with them. Stay positive It’s a tough economy but teaching positions keep opening every now and then in various schools and colleges. Don’t give up hope and you’ll soon bag a great teaching job. That’s it for now Busy Educator. Until next time, Talk to each other, support each other, take care of each other.’ Marjan

Don’t Let Them Junk Your Resume – Avoid These Mistakes There are many people who have all the right qualifications and skills, but somehow never get called for an interview. Are you one of them?

Careers provision map to meet the new statutory guidance from Jan 2018 (GATSBY)

Careers provision map to meet the new statutory guidance from Jan 2018 (GATSBY)

This is a careers strategy that maps out careers provision from Y7-Y13 to help your school become compliant with the new statutory changes for careers launched in January 2018. The roll out of this plan will satisfy all Gatsby standards which outlines best practice in this area. The document is a comprehensive map of provision that can be adapted to any school setting (including one with a sixth form). The document can be edited so that you can include your school branding. The idea is the map is then printed at size A1. I have also included some recruitment documents and the pupil survey.

You're not the only teacher having a bad day!

You're not the only teacher having a bad day!

One of the things which has given me the most comfort in my teaching career is hearing teachers swear in the staffroom. It sounds strange but it’s a funny sort of therapy - knowing that someone else is also having a bad day. Sometimes we just need a bit of reassurance that we’re not alone in whatever’s going on in our professional lives. We all have bad days but sometimes it’s easy to think we’re the only ones. This collection of stories, confessions, grievances and all-out ‘fails’ written by an online community of real teachers is a little window into the problems of teachers around the world. Some will make you cringe, some will make you smile. We’re not endorsing, condoning or condemning anything you read here. Some of the actions described could not be described as ‘best practice’ while some seem like the musings of criminal masterminds. Take some comfort and draw your own conclusions...

Assembly: Back to school September - Collecting your life miles

Assembly: Back to school September - Collecting your life miles

I used this assembly last September with my school assembly and it went down really well with the students really captivated by the story of David Phillips who managed to collected 1.25million air miles by buying puddings (look the story up on google - worth a read). Essentially, the powerpoint which lasts around 15minutes goes through David's story but then uses it as an analogy for "life miles" which they collect when they attend school, it goes through how to collect more " life miles" and shows you what you can buy with them which is essentially choices like university, dream jobs, travelling the world. Save yourself some time and effort and get this ready to use off the shelf assembly. Thanks for looking Jon
