I teach by creating the framework for the student and helping them to form their own conclusions. Students will learn to apply real life scenarios to theory, and utilise logic to reach outcomes. The most important thing is helping students to learn, rather than feeding them information.
I have been teaching for 4 years, and have experience working within the sector. I have taught levels 2 through 5 and have taught BTEC, Access, City and Guilds, A-level and Foundation degrees. I have taught a range of learners at different ages and have also been responsible for running programmes.

City College Plymouth (09/14 – 9/18) Lecturer, Team Leader
In this position, I was responsible for teaching multiple Health and Social Care courses from level 2 through to Foundation Degree. Alongside the basic requirements to plan and deliver up to 35 hours of lessons a week, as well as designing assessment material, I was also heavily involved in planning the academic year which involved determining the best structure for delivering a course and writing course planners for other lecturers to work from.
I was also responsible for managing course and student data; the latter in especially high volumes. I was responsible for moderation and internal assessment of work to ensure quality standards are high, and to ensure work is of the highest standard. I was at the forefront of the introduction of Google Drive and Classroom within the care department and the increased use of IT in teaching the subject. I have been a key figure at course information days, taster days, preparation events and marketing events for the College.
I needed to be both flexible and well organised in this role, and this is something I pride myself on. This year, I took on further responsibility under very difficult circumstances. Due to unexpected staff loss, I took on the role of Programme Team Leader for 2 of the programmes my department runs. I took on a course leadership role with little notice and time to prepare and led the students and course to 100% success and achievement in our Level 3 BTEC. This required me to lead staff, make decisions regarding the curriculum, and take responsibility and accountability for the various events and milestones throughout the educational year
My proudest achievement was coordinating an exchange trip with a college in Luzern, Switzerland which required me to arrange work placements in a foreign country I had not previously visited, and then the following year organize work placements, accommodation etc. for Swiss students visiting Plymouth. This took a high level of organisation and required much collaboration between different organisations and departments, with the added difficulty of a language barrier. This trip was incredibly successful, and the project continues to run.
National Citizen Service (7/15 – 9-15) Team Leader
My job role involved leading a team of young adults in an activity week, and then to create a charity event for 6 weeks. This involved safeguarding the young adults, interacting with local businesses and charities, and managing finances to ensure that the project was successful. We raised over £500 for charity.
Selworthy Special School (02/10 - 05/10) Classroom assistant
In this position, I worked alongside a group of classroom assistants to support a teacher. It was my responsibility to maintain the safety and security of the learners who had SEN. I was given the responsibility of facilitating their continued classroom and social development.
