I'm seriously considering returning to uni to study education with the aim of taking a full time teaching role in primary education.
I'm hesitant on a few points.. How do you get a placement near home? I'm not in a position to be relocating my family and my ds who already goes to school.
And how do you mange the study load/work load with family. Uni website says FT study is 10-15hrs a week.. This doesn't seem much. But I am unsure of what's in involved in the course load and assignments etc.
As far as I can tell the only road for getting a job as a primary teacher is to do the Bach education (primary) for 4yrs FT and then hope you get a job afterwards. Is this correct?
I have 2 LOs. Both of which will be in school by the time I finish studying. Do your kids meet you after class? What are the work hrs typically?
I want FT work. But two kids in after school and holiday care is just silly IMO. I'm hoping this meets our needs as a family as well as gives me a career I will enjoy.
What qualities do you find make a good teacher?
Any and all experience and advice would be wonderful!
