Back to School! It may be teaching young children their ABCs or turning your favourite subject of music or PE into a career. Education and training is a growth industry and from teacher’s aides to trainers, there are many great roles to explore. Want to know more about a career in education? Then our upcoming Industry Live is for you! In this week’s Industry Live on may 6th we will be joined by three excellent speakers, Rebecca, Caroline and Philip, providing insights about what it is like to make education your career.
Rebecca is the Health & Physical Education Manager at Elizabeth College in Hobart.
Rebecca’s background includes not only education but also coaching athletes at the elite level in netball for the Australian Institute of Sport. Rebecca’s current role as Health & Physical Education Manager at Elizabeth College in Tasmania combines her own sporting prowess and love of sport with a passion for working with and developing young people, both academically and athletically.
Rebecca will talk to us about how a degree in education can open up many doors and many possibilities for a career. She’ll also share with us some of the top tips she gives the young athletes she works with.
Our second panellist is Caroline. She is a kindergarten teacher who is passionate about making very young children feel secure and inspired in their learning.
Caroline is a kindergarten teacher who has used her own commitment to lifelong learning to help her develop and guide the young minds of tomorrow.
Caroline not only works with kindergarteners on their ABCs but also teaches them how to appreciate other cultures via a range of creative tools.
Caroline will talk to us about what the day to day life of a kindergarten teacher looks like, as well as the character traits that make the best early learning teachers.
Finally, Philip works in the higher education sector at La Trobe University in Melbourne, helping to support young people in their transitions to university and the world of work.
During his career so far, Philip has worked with university students to match them with industry mentors to maximise their opportunities after university and has also worked with high school students highlighting the benefits of higher education, whether that be going to uni or TAFE.
Philip will talk to us about the transferable skills he believes young people gain from participating in higher learning as well as what you can expect if you decide to go to university.
