“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge” Albert Einstein
Ever considered a teaching career in Further Education (FE)?
Working in FE really makes a difference to the individuals you are teaching. All sorts of students come through the door of an FE college: the 16 year old who senses that it’s time to leave school; the adult facing unemployment who wants to retrain to find a job; the non-native speaker looking to master English; or the individual who wants to follow a vocation rather than take a degree. They all have an eye on their future and this role helps them achieve their goals.
