What Is It Really Like To Be A Teacher?
To help you decide if teaching is the career for you, our wonderful community of teachers within our partner schools have taken time to share some of their thoughts and experiences. In the Teacher Case Studies section below you can read about what a typical teaching day looks like, the benefits, rewards and challenges of teaching from those actually teaching and their words of advice for anyone considering joining the profession.
The A Day in the Life of Videos section contains two short videos:
In A Day in the Life of a Teacher, current teachers Pete Marsh (Biology) and Emily Lister (Geography) from Weydon School in Farnham, Surrey talk to our SCITT Director Maria Mezzullo about what a typical day entails. From the start of the day through to home time they look at managing behaviour, tutor responsibilities, extra-curricular and professional development opportunities, duty times and much more.
In A Day in the Life of an i2i Trainee, current i2i trainees Ben Roberts (Music) and Alice Ruffle (MFL) chat to Maria about life as a trainee, including professional study days, teaching a class for the very first time, the highlights, the challenges, and why they love what they do.
If these case studies and videos inspire you and you would like to find out more about training to teach with i2i then please complete our Enquiry Form and a member of our team will be in touch.
