Planning and Organisation:

I have considerable experience of organising people, activities and resources through teaching, in my voluntary committee work, and as district organiser for Watch.

Reliability and responsibility:

I have an excellent attendance record at University and work. All my experience has demanded high standards of care and attention to detail, particularly with regard to the safety and wellbeing of others.


My paid and voluntary work in schools as help and teacher has shown that I can communicate with and relate to a wide age and ability range. Through my University course, I have developed high-level written and presentational skills.


In college and in school, I have enjoyed working closely with colleagues to share ideas and specialist knowledge. In particular, my work with Watch entailed close co-operation with activity leaders.

Information Communications Technology:

I have a working knowledge of a range of Microsoft applications, including Word, Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher and Photoshop, which I use to create materials and integrate ICT as a resource within my lessons. I have also used specialist subject-specific software packages, often in conjunction with a whiteboard. I regularly use the internet for research and lesson planning.
