Have you ever considered a career in teaching? Peafield Lane, along with our partners at Flying High Trust and Inspiring Leaders are now training our own, most promising, graduates and setting them up with roles within our schools.
Let’s be straight – this is a tough job and certainly not 9:00-3:30 with 13 weeks a year sitting with your feet up. Being a parent is hard enough, especially if there are 3 or even 4 children in the household. Multiply that number to 30 and be told, your job is to not only keep them safe but to ensure each and every one of them listens and learns and cares and grows.
Are you the kind of person who can, for example, recognise the difference between squabbling and bullying, or between a child who is mucky because she’s often playing outside in the woods and one who is dirty because he’s being neglected – and are you OK being held to account by law on your ability to recognise and act on those differences? To take responsibility for a group of 30 individuals and play such an important role in improving their future lives, whilst hard, can also be one of the most rewarding professions there is – one where, when you retire, you can say, “I’ve made a difference.”
Have a think, there is no age limit to being a great teacher. If it is something you might be interested in then come and talk or visit the Inspiring Leaders website where our partners work with us to train the very best teachers.
