Tailored support throughout your journey into teaching
With a first-class degree in geoscience and 20 years’ worth of work experience under her belt – Sue decided she wanted to use her passion for geography to teach young people about the fascinating natural world in which we live, and inspire them to enjoy geography. And the move was made even easier by her Premier Plus adviser, who was able to tailor advice and support to Sue’s circumstances.
“I found it most helpful to have each step of the teacher training process explained to me, as this helped me to identify what I needed to do at each stage. There’s also quite a lot of confusing terminology used around teaching and my adviser helped me get to grips with this. Additionally, the constructive feedback I received was especially useful, especially for my personal statement.”
“The support is tailored to your needs rather than being a generic ‘one size fits all’ approach. There were some parts of the support that I didn’t need and others that I definitely did.”
"I was supported throughout the application process – specifically for me I was provided support with my personal statement, interviews and with the skills tests. Importantly, my adviser helped with arranging my school experience to support my application," says the now geography trainee.
There’s a peace of mind that comes with knowing there’s someone you can ring or email. Without the Premier Plus service, I wouldn’t have pursued my application. I would recommend you should take the plunge, take the support on offer and get going!
