Introduction

Task 1: In this task, I will be talking about different careers if have considered taking. I will describe 3 different careers and include information such as qualifications required to get the job, roles that are to be carried out and the responsibilities that are assigned to each role. Teaching There are many roles in the teaching sector. These include: * Nursery teacher * Primary school teacher * Secondary school teacher (High school) * Tertiary school teacher (College/6th form) * Technician * Supply teacher * PSW (Pastoral Support Worker) The teaching job is mainly in the public sector meaning their salary is given to them by the government. Public sector jobs are more secure than private sector jobs as they are less likely to be made redundant. The job roles that are to be carried out by the teacher, is specified in the job description. Similarly, the skills needed to become a teacher are mention in the person specification. These recruitment documents are put up along with the job advert so the teaching institution can get the right person for the job. A teacher gets paid on salary, not a wage which depends on the amount of experience they have. For example a teacher who has worked at an institution for 5 years will get paid more than someone who has just started teaching. The salary can also depend on what type of teacher they are. For example, the starting salary for a nursery teacher is �15,000. This can reach up to �30,000 but this is unlikely unless they become they come the manager of the nursery. The starting salary of a primary school teacher is �17,000; the starting salary for a secondary school teacher can range �19,000 - �23,000 depending on what type of subject they're teaching. For example an English teacher would get paid more than a Music teacher because the English teacher has to more students to teach therefore they have more responsibility. ...read more.

Middle

This stops the patients from feeling any pan whilst the tooth is being removed. If no operations are required, the dentist would usually give advice on how the patients should take care of their teeth. The typical day for a dentist would be to enter the practice. They would then see any patients who have made an appointment. Similarly to the doctor, they are required to call in stating what time they would like to come in. When the patient see's the dentist, they would be asked to sit on a chair. The dentist would then adjust they chair to a suitable location so they can check the patients teeth. Upon doing this, they would check the teeth and operate on any of them if needed such as adding a filling or taking out a teeth. A dentist would have an assistant with them who would hand them the necessary tools just like a nurse would do to a surgeon. There is also another type of dentist called orthodontist. The role of the orthodontist is to put braces into the patient's teeth. However, in order for the patients to be eligible for braces, they have to get the required permission from the dentist. Similarly to a dentist, an orthodontist would also have their own practice. The salary of a dentist can vary depending on the location of the practice however the average salary of a dentist in the UK is �75,000 a year. This can go as high as �100,000 if the practice is located on a busy high street as there are more people located there. Pharmacist: A pharmacist is someone who works inside a shop which is known as a chemist. They primary role is to exchange the prescription from the customer which is given to them by the doctor for the actual medicine. They may also give advice to the customer for example if they are having problems sleeping, they would suggest them some tablets they could take. ...read more.

Conclusion

They are given training on the different routes to the destination they are required to go to collect the rubbish. There is also vehicle training available for police officers, paramedics and firefighters as they would need to find the quickest route to the destination. It is also given to them as they are travelling at fast speeds when their sirens are on and they have to avoid accidents themselves. Career Progression Routes: Public service sector jobs (especially rubbish men) require no formal education although a pass in GCSE is required as well as A level. A person can get a job within the public service sector without going to university. However there are possible progression routes for the people who are more passionate or what to learn more about the job. For a police officer there are possible courses available at university such as criminology. This is a course about crime, punishment and law and would benefit a police officer as they would need this knowledge to do their job. Before a police officer can get their jobs, they are required to pass a few physical and written exams to test their ability and knowledge. They also have to attend a few training courses which can last up to 20 weeks. For fire-fighters can study the Fire and Rescue Service Management or Fire Safety & Risk Management course at university. There courses help deal with safety procedures and fire safety which is beneficial for a fire-fighter. Similarly to a police officer they are required to pass some exams and attend an academy to get use life as a fire-fighter. Paramedic science courses are available to paramedics which deal with theory similar to Biology as it deals with the human body. Part of this course also deals with health care so which helps paramedics to deal with injured patients. After university which is optional for they are required to undergo training which prepares them to become a fully qualified paramedic.
