If you already know that this is the role for you, like I do, then you will hopefully find this useful. I started an Access course last year as a mature student and will finish in July this year - I'm really looking forward to it! I decided on the Social Work course for university, because I am...

“So you want to be a Carer”

published 13/05/2003

Very rewarding

Not overpaid, anti social hours.

So you want an education or career in Caring ? then first you will need some groundwork on the sort of issues that it covers, and whether you think that is the right environment for you. The politics of disability has changed over the centuries, for the better, by improved access facilities...

A bad system which runs off funding

I currently work in a mainstream high school in the SEN Department. I decided to write this review on the statementing process as I know that not everyone knows what this process is or what it involves. Firstly, a child who is mentally 3 years or below their chronoloigal age will automatically be...

“DECISIONS DECISIONS”

Can you remember back to when you were sixteen and coming up to finishing school? Or maybe you are at that stage of your life right now. Well apart from downing cider on park benches and arranging your love life, you need to sort your life out too. After you have done your GCSE's you need to make...

Infamous for being the best days of your life

It is not the right choice for some

Are you sure? Nearly 7 years ago I went to University. 18 months later I left: Half of a degree done and nothing to show for it. That is apart from the 180 credits towards a degree that I put on my CV just to prove that I did gain something academic from the experience! WHY DID I GO? I had only...

whilst summarising the skills, qualities and attributes I have gained through study are:- one of the qualities I have gained, is I have become very caring.

You might do well

You might do badly

Exams for most people tend to be the most stressful part of their life by my age. Fortunately for me, they don’t stress me out to much because I rarely stress about anything but I can see how people can get worked up about them. Anyway, I thought I would make up a little opinion on how to...

“A Day in the Life”

published 27/12/2005

May be heard

May be misunderstood

"The worst vice is advice." -- The Devil's Advocate Advice is a tendentious device, which is only used to manipulate one into adopting a particular way of approaching or perceiving something. So many people, especially parents, are quick to give advice about many things; often it is disguised in...

“A LEVEL WHAT EXACTLY....”

published 07/10/2001

May be the key to further education/profession

Can waste valuable adult earning time!

Hmm, we're told all through our childhood and teens to go to school, study hard, get our exams etc if we want to get a good job and get on in life - but just how vital is this? I myself am the grand old age of 34 (pushing 35!) and attained 7 'O' Levels and 3'A' Levels during my education days...

flexibility, freedom

not enough money

I started my own business in 1995. Before that I worked for a large hospital based physician group. I was making $45,000.00 a year plus benefits. I earned 6 weeks vacation per year and was 100% vested in our pension plan. I had health insurance, life insurance and even disability insurance. I had...

“NHS don't work here!”

published 14/04/2004

Not the lowest of the low in salary

Just gets worse and worse

I've worked in the NHS in administration for 16 years and wondered if there was anyone out there who did and who feels the same way as me. When I first joined the NHS, it all seemed to be very well run, albeit a long line of managers did prevail, and over the years the formulation of Trusts came...

This is some helpful information for you all. Nevver do it the hard way and take the route I have done. Not that some of it was my fault anyway. But it just gets harder and harder each time to find employment. I messed up my career chances by getting into too much debt and having to quit...

“ARRRRRGGGGHHHHHH.......UNI”

published 07/09/2001

Being independent for probably the 1st time

Feeling lonely immediately after your folks leave.

This is my second opinion about university so as you can probably tell, it is plaguing my mind somewhat. I am due to go to Nottingham University on the 23rd September to study Medicine. The excitement over the last couple of months has seemed to have fizzled out however and has left me feeling...

“Aspartame aspirations”

published 26/05/2003

Many, many.

Many, many more.

“So, young man… what do you want to be when you grow up?” I hated that question because a) it’s so bloody patronising, and b) I’m under the impression that they want you to say, “a careers officer, like you, sir.” Never gonna happen… I was first asked this pernicious little question in primary...
