Challenging place to work
TAFE Teacher (Former Employee) – Melbourne, VIC – 8 July 2014
My typical day would start with checking emails and replying including preparing for the lessons I either have or will deliver in a day or two. Searching for the latest speeches and news can be time consuming and I always asked my interpreting students for feedback and suggestions on the specific area to focus in classes. My classes were inclusive and challenging for students as I believe learning environment should be that way. I also ran workshops with my colleagues, designed curriculum for core classes on note taking and interpreting techniques based on my extensive experience. I enjoyed attending seminar run by other professors in global studies but the downfall was long hours and work on weekend which had affected my work life balance. I really wanted to continue working in my position however due to TAFE budget cuts by contract was not renewed.
Free seminars and training
