How Social Media Can Help You In Your Teaching Job Hunt

How Social Media Can Help You In Your Teaching Job Hunt

Hello Busy Educator! How Social Media Can Help You in Your Teaching Job Hunt When it comes to job hunting, sometimes prospective teachers don’t use social media very well. And this can become their weak point. Social media is as important in teaching as in any other industry. Your social networking profile is like your informal resume. So, keep only those things on it that you would like to share with everyone. Teachers have to maintain a leading role so it’s best to keep your profile clean and professional. Here are some ways in which social media can help your job hunt. For more information, please visit www.TheBusyEducator.com

Life Goals! A motivational and interactive workbook

Life Goals! A motivational and interactive workbook

This workbook has been designed as an interactive, thought provoking and interesting guide to life for those disenfranchised students that need that extra motivation and support in school and designed by a school SENCO. It has 14 pages packed full of questions, activities, puzzles and tasks, all designed to make students question, what am I doing this for? It can be used with students who have been removed from mainstream lessons/placed in an isolation room, students that have arrived on a placement from another school, or even just to help students look at what they want their future to be! It has been highly successful in it’s current setting, and works best when a student is working individually, or as part of a group with teacher facilitation, it gives an opportunity for you to learn more about a student, what motivates them, makes them tick, and what you can do to support them where perhaps others are currently failing. Designed as a running document with fun rest breaks in between, student feedback has been overwhelmingly positive! Especially the equipment Maze!

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

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.
