I am an Essential Skills Leader at Barnsley College. I teach Functional Skills maths, English and ICT at levels E3 to L2. I also teach BTEC first and extended Diploma students in Business Finance and Marketing.
I have been teaching for nearly two years, and I am loving the career change. I would like to say I wish I did it sooner, but I think my past careers actually help shape this career and make me appreciate what I am doing. I am always looking for new ideas and want to share those of mine that work.
I signed up to wordpress two months ago with the intention to start blogging about my lessons/teaching experiences. I am quite impressed that I was already one step ahead of needing to do this for the MSc in Multimedia and E learning. I have not blogged anything, but now I have the incentive and a new term starting.
