Philosophy and RE Teaching from an academic and qualified teacher in Liverpool

Methodology

I want to encourage students to work from the facts of the topic (what do Christians believe, up-to-date information on poverty, etc) to the high-level analysis expected through questions and model answers on other topics, so that students fully own their work. I encourage students to have and to confidently use quotes and sources, and am happy to help them find the quotes and sources that work best for them. I use a wide range of sources, so I will be able to make recommendations for videos, websites, and podcasts that can help students do their own learning.

Experience

I am a qualified teacher and academic based in Liverpool. I've taught in schools in Cheshire, London, and Liverpool, covering humanities subjects, mainly Religious Education/Studies. I also was an academic before becoming a teacher, studying Philosophy. I've taught Key Stage 3, 4, and 5, including students who went on to Oxbridge. As an academic, I led undergraduate seminars on philosophy.

I provide emergency cover to schools in the Liverpool area, covering a range of subjects and year groups depending on need.

I taught Religious Education at Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8, and 9, when students are between 11 and 14) and Key Stage 4 (Year 10, when students are between 15 and 16)
I was a form tutor for a Year 12 form, leading Personal, Social and Health Education lessons on topics such as career planning, relationships, and drug and substance risks.
As part of the department, I helped plan curriculum changes in Key Stage 3 and sourced lesson materials such as extracts, videos, and images.
In the run-up to the lockdown, I took responsibility for the online lessons for Year 9, preparing a set of lessons on Hinduism for all Year 9 RE teachers to use.
I have taken part in several training events as part of both the school’s overall Continuing Professional Development programme and the school’s Newly Qualified Teacher programme, including on High Performance Learning theory and curriculum development.

September 2018-June 2019 – Trainee Teacher of Religious Education at Cheshire Vale Teaching School Alliance
As a trainee teacher, I taught at two different schools; Tarporley High School and Sixth Form College, and the Catholic High School Chester.
I taught Key Stage 3 Religious Education, including independent teaching at Year 9, Key Stage 4 Religious Education and Core RE, and Key Stage 5 Religious Studies, both Year 12 and Year 13.
I supported two different Key Stage 3 forms, one in Year 8 at Tarporley, and one in Year 9 at the Catholic High School.
I attended a range of training events, both through my PGCE provider and through the schools, including events on behaviour management and curriculum development.

I helped to prepare and organise season 2 of Bartalk, a lecture series covering esoteric knowledge, alternative histories and weird science.
I contributed from the initial planning and funding application phase through till the first event.
I also helped design the website, worked with potential speakers, and planned event themes.

October 2015- December 2016 – Administrative and Communications Assistant at The European Library (TEL)
I prepared TEL’s communication strategy, working with the Director of TEL and the Communications department of Europeana.
I wrote, edited, and formatted reports, newsposts, blogs, and social media posts, and handled the CMS for both theeuropeanlibrary.org (Confluence) and research.europeana.eu (Bolt).
I provided analyses of TEL datasets and identified problem sets using the TEL CRM and Europeana API
I supported the Library Coordination Group and TEL staff in both virtual and physical meetings.
I took a central role in preparing TEL and TEL’s data for the closure at the end of 2016, communicating the change to partner institutions and the public, archiving documentation, and identifying datasets for migration.
I worked with Europeana Research on meetings, the Europeana Research Grants, and publishing collections to the Europeana Research website;
I took part in the Europeana Hack Week 2016, developing a toolset for creating board and card games from public domain resources.

January-June 2015 – Exam Invigilator at the British School in the Netherlands
