Career Dinner: Teaching

Including Psychology, Writing and Performance

Thursday 9 March at 6.30pm in De Quetteville Library

RSVP by Thursday 2 March 2017

This is an exciting event organised on behalf of those students who are interested in following a career in Teaching, and associated careers.

We have invited three speakers at different stages of their teaching careers from an undergraduate to a head teacher - each will offer insight to the path they took and explain about some of the decisions and challenges they faced along the way.

In addition, we have invited an Educational Psychologist which will interest those students looking at a career in medicine, with particular focus on psychology. It will also be useful for those with an interest in teaching to learn about the important role that well-being, good mental health and leadership have in education today.

Our last speaker specialises in education through the spoken word and is currently a Poet in Residence at schools in the UK. With an MA from Goldsmiths University - and a record deal with Kompyla Records - his focus is on promoting emotional literacy and well-being.

Following on from the short presentations our students will be able to sit with the guests in order to pick their brains over dinner. This is provided free of charge by the Victoria College Foundation, in support of the Headmaster's Lifelong Learning programme. 

Guest Speakers:

  • Henry Job, Undergraduate at the University of Brighton
  • Allan Falle, Teacher of PE and ICT, and Academic Head of Year at Hautlieu School
