Evaluation of chosen career path

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Task 9: I will know evaluate the suitability of my chosen career (secondary school ICT teacher) as well as the route I am going to take to achieve this. I have chosen to work within the teaching sector, working as a secondary school ICT teacher, as I have a passion for teaching which means I would be motivated to come into work every day and teach. Helping students to get their required qualifications, will give me a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. Another reason why I have chosen this sector over the others is because my career test showed that this sector was the most suitable for me as it was ranked the highest with 99%. I think this sector is most suitable for me as I have chosen ICT at GCSE as well as A level. I am also very interested in computers and ICT which would mean I would enjoy teaching ICT and secondary school. I have not chosen do work in the other two mentioned pathways. The reason for this is because the healthcare sector requires roughly 15 years at university. I know that I won't be able to stay at university as I will get bored at my debts will increase immensely. ...read more.

Another skill that I lack is innovation skills as 3 people said I have good innovation skills whereas 2 people said average and 1 person said satisfactory. This would mean I won't be able to come up with new ways to teach i.e. plan activities, I would give repetitive tasks such as homework and class work. This would lead the students getting bored which would be they won't perform to the best of their ability. Therefore I need to focus improving on this skill. I could do this by looking at examples of other teachers of by attending training courses. As I'm working towards becoming a secondary school teacher I could develop my personal qualities to mach my job. An example of how I could do this is for punctuality, I could arrive 15 minutes early for every lesson. This will prepare me for waking up early and getting to my work place either on time or earlier. It will also give me more time to prepare for the lesson that is about to commence. There are a number of factors that could affect my chosen pathway. One of these factors is not getting the required amount of funds to pay my finances. ...read more.

Conclusion

If I am not able to get the necessary fund to pay for my courses and university, then it will result in me taking a gap year and find some sort of temporary job. The advantages of doing this is that the amount needed for the student loan would be decreased as I will be using my own money. It will also mean that also I will be more mature and will be more prepared than before. I believe that the student loan would motivate me to accomplish my career pathway as I would have the required funds for my courses. This would mean I would work to the best of my ability as I wouldn't want to waste my time at university and let all that money go to waste. In conclusion I have set on my career I wish to take. Setting out my pathway would allow me to stick to it and complete it to the best possible manner. Completing this pathway would allow me to successfully enter the teaching sector and would allow me to teach as a secondary school ICT teacher. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
