Teaching assistants: Accountancy-style career path planned

Teaching assistants: Accountancy-style career path planned

[ad_1] More from this theme Recent articles A pioneering academy trust wants to establish a “public service” higher education institution to train teaching assistants (TAs) on a “progression pathway” similar to that of accountants. Ed Vainker, chief executive of the Reach Foundation, said the new organisation would specialise in “establishing pathways to graduate roles in schools for non-graduates in our communities”. With huge teacher shortages, Vainker believes non-graduates in schools should be a key focus for the sector as graduates turn away from the profession in favour of flexible jobs post-Covid. Ed Vainker “We’ve got a real challenge in our workforce,” he told Schools Week. “We’re not able to find the teachers we need. “Yet we’ve got a number of people in those teaching assistant roles, who have the skills, the experience, the expertise, to be great teachers – but they don’t currently have a degree.” Only graduates can become qualified teachers, either through a postgraduate route for those with an existing degree, or by completing a bachelor’s degree that includes qualified teacher status (QTS). …

Naoya Inoue suffers first knockdown of his career – then delivers knockout victory

Naoya Inoue suffers first knockdown of his career – then delivers knockout victory

[ad_1] Naoya Inoue, the undisputed world super-bantamweight champion, recovered from the first knockdown of his professional career to stop Luis Nery in devastating fashion. The 31-year-old Japanese, who has held world titles at four different weights and two undisputed, went down in the first round, but picked himself up to secure a sixth-round victory after putting his Mexican opponent down for the third time with a brutal right hand. Nery stunned both the champion and a 55,000 sell-out crowd at the Tokyo Dome in Japan – where Buster Douglas shocked Mike Tyson in 1990 – when barely two minutes into the fight he floored Inoue with a swinging left hook. However, Nery had to pick himself up from the canvas in the second after the Japanese fighter caught him with a short left. Inoue scored heavily with the straight right in an impressive third-round display and began to showboat in the fourth as a frustrated Nery repeatedly missed the target with his big punches and was peppered with his opponent’s jab and body shots. The 29-year-old’s …

Martial arts legend Sammo Hung discusses his career

[ad_1] And Hung sees no plans for retirement in the future. Instead, he plans to be “retired from work but not from society”.  “When God has granted you this opportunity and aspiration, you can still act, dream, and ‘scold people’, why would you want to retire? “Unless you have really (ran) out of ideas, and you have no more energy left, and it feels like you don’t know anything anymore, then yes, (you should) retire,” he said.  Hung’s love for the craft can also be seen in the high standards that he sets for himself, sharing an anecdote where he once had to retake a scene 108 times for a film he was shooting.  “When you’re shooting a film, you have a vision of how you want the framing to look…It’s only right that you have an idea and principle, you can’t just be satisfied with any level of standards.”  When asked what is one piece of advice he would give to young filmmakers, Hung said: “Perseverance.”  He explained that the current environment for filmmaking …

Alfred Molina Says ‘I Did Disappoint My Dad’ With Acting Career

[ad_1] Alfred Molina struggled to hold back tears as he shared a story about his late father, who never vocally expressed his support for his acting career. The actor opened up about his relationship with his father while looking back at his acting career during a recent interview with Vanity Fair. The Spider-Man 2 star recalled turning down the chance to become a manager at a restaurant with a higher salary to pursue his passion for acting — a decision he said his dad didn’t understand. “When I was very young, my dad got me a job as a waiter in the restaurant where he was working. If I say so myself, I was a good waiter to the point where the management offered me the chance to do a two-week management training course,” Molina said. “I turned it down because I got an acting job. My father says, ‘This acting job, how much are they paying you?’ I said, ‘I’m getting union wage, so 15 pounds a week.’” When his father learned that he …

How to Boost Your Reputation and Career

How to Boost Your Reputation and Career

[ad_1] There is a distinction to be made between communications and conversation. Communication is transmitting information in one direction. Examples would include confirming dates, inviting people to a meeting, wishing a colleague a happy vacation, and such. Emails and texts are inexpensive and convenient ways to communicate. Conversation, on the other hand, is about exchanging ideas with an attitude of respect. Email and texts are inappropriate media tools for conversation. (Stybel Peabody, 2020). David Brooks is an American conservative political and cultural commentator who writes for The New York Times. He has also been a commentator on National Public Radio and the PBS Newshour. How to Know a Person is Brook’s latest book. His interest in the skills of conversation is in line with what we see as the need to distinguish yourself at work in the age of artificial intelligence. Are You a Conversationalist? Brook writes: “The purpose of this book is to help us become more skilled at the art of seeing others and making them feel seen, heard, and understood. When I …
