Jobshop with Plymouth University
I decided to check out Jobshop today, and I was surprised to find out it wasn't just a graduate job search engine, it is filled with useful information and tools to help with job searching. It contains free videos and E-learning courses on CV building, planning and techniques. I will be using this site more throughout this module and my time after university for continuous help and support.
I included some videos from Jobshop, a range of college lecturers talking about their experiences with teaching and how they got to where they are now.
Matthew Kolakowksi is a Curriculum Leader in Fine Art and Photography at Kensington and Chelsea College. He says “It’s a job I always wanted to do. I wanted to be in charge of an Art Department… Satisfaction I get from my job is in seeing learners progress, seeing them actually at those moments they get excited about the work they produce. That’s very rewarding.”
Alison J is Head of Learning and Teaching at the London College of Fashion, “I do teacher training, I teach on dissertations, I do educational projects and innovations, I work with course teams on curriculum designer delivery, I work with students on projects, on reflective practice, I make the tea”. It took some time, and various different jobs, before Alison found her ‘spiritual home’ in education.
