A ‘teacher champion’ from West Nottinghamshire College is appearing in a recruitment film to encourage graduates to train for a teaching career in the further education sector.

Alison Tate, a teacher training tutor, appears in the video discussing why she went into teaching and the personal rewards she gets from the job.

Alison, from Mansfield, said: “Every day is different; every student that you meet is different and you learn so much – but you’re also giving so much back as well.”

The film is called Teach Skills, Touch Lives and is produced by industry body the Education and Training Foundation (ETF),

It sees a number of ‘teacher champions’ from several colleges and training providers across the country give their own personal testimonies about working in the sector.

“While many aspiring teachers take the traditional routes of going into primary or secondary education, I hope this video encourages more people, particularly those with vocational expertise, to consider a career in further education.”
