Introduction

Task 4: My ambition for the future is to become a teacher. I want to become a teacher because teaching has been one on my passions ever since I was young. Another reason why I want to get into teaching is because the job is more secure as it is in the public sector. This means I am less likely to be made redundant which is important factor because of the current recession. I want to work as an ICT teacher as I find ICT enjoyable and interesting from the way it changes our everyday lives to the new technologies that are constantly being invented. Another reason why I chose to choose go into the teaching sector is because I have taken multiple test and they show that I should get a job in teaching. I have chosen to work in the teaching sector as it is a public sector job. This means that my salary would be paid to me by the government so I would be less likely to be made redundant. This is an important factor as the UK is currently in the recession. The following graph was taken from a career test I have taken.

As well as academic responsibilities, I have also taken responsibilities at home as well. One example of this is that I was left at home with my brother while my parents attended a wedding at Brighton. This shows our parents trusted us and knew that we could take care of ourselves. Some people come to me with they have problems or upset. The can rely on me to cheer them or assist them with their problem. This is a useful quality that a teacher should have as students make come to the, on a personal level to ask them for help and guidance. Being able to solve other people problems would give me a sense of satisfaction as I know I have helped someone. These qualities would help me get into the job because most employers tend to look for applicants who are motivated in their work as well as hardworking. This is important because if the candidates are motivated as well as hardworking, then they are more likely work to their full potential. Overall I believe that these qualities would help me get into the education sector as it shows I am the right candidate for the job. Qualification To become a secondary school subject teacher, a minimum of 5 GCSE's at grades A* - C are required. I currently have 6 GCSE which shows I am available to teach at secondary school. ...read more.

Conclusion

Another skill that is required by a teacher is good time management skills. This means that they need to organise a lesson that will flow in a steady pace as well as giving a lesson where there isn't too much planned. A lesson that will be finished too quickly would mean not enough would be learnt from the information given and can have a great effect on student's learning. The 6 people the filled out the personal sheet said that I posses this skills as 2 people said I am excellent at time management and 4 people said that I am good at it. I believe that I have motivation skills for the reason that I always motivate students in order for them to enjoy the subject as well as making them work to their best ability in order for them to achieve the highest grade possible. Having good motivation skills is required by a teacher as they would need to be supportive towards the students in order for them to get their work done and for them to reach to their full potential. All these attributes shows that I am able to work successfully in the teaching sector. I can also put these on my CV which would impress the employee when they are recruiting which would result in a higher chance of the employing me. By having all the qualities, skills and qualifications, I would be able to contribute to the success of the school. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
