How do your Students describe you?
“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”
William Arthur Ward (1921-1994)
Think back to your days at School, College or University – is there a particular teacher or lecturer that stands out in your mind? For many people, myself included, the teachers that made a lasting impression were those who inspired, engaged, supported and challenged their students; individuals often gifted with the uncanny ability of making a fairly rigid (and often dull) curriculum seem exciting, interesting and memorable. Admittedly, when all of those characteristics are written down on a piece of paper it does look as though the role of ‘Amazing Teacher’ is about as easy to achieve as a wasp-free summer picnic involving jam sandwiches…
Have you ever thought how your students describe you? Are you a good listener, an engaging speaker, and a passionate storyteller? Are you able to recognise when a student is struggling with a concept or topic, or to determine whether or not the work is challenging enough to keep a student motivated and focused? At Footstep Training, we don’t think that becoming a great teacher is an impossible task. We firmly believe that if you are passionate about teaching and are willing to learn about effective teaching methods and learning styles, you too could be held in high esteem by your students when they reminisce about the educators who made a positive difference to their lives.
Our passion for top quality teaching isn’t just an issue that we cover in our Education and Training Courses – as a training provider ourselves, we work hard to ensure that WE are great teachers too! All of our courses use innovative resources such as virtual learning environments, interactive forms and video tutorials to help challenge and engage learners. We also work hard to support our students and encourage them to contact us if they have any questions, issues or concerns at all. Footstep Training is a small, family run business that prides itself on the quality of training we are able to provide; our reputation is built on the positive feedback of our students, so we constantly strive to improve the service we provide and the courses that we offer.
