Job title: PE Assistant
Type of position: Placement
Company: Notting Hill and Ealing High School for girls

Why I loved it:

“I loved having the ability to put teaching into practice and teach my own classes when I was able to do so, and learn from those experiences as to what I could do better for the next class. I also enjoyed being organised and having things planned in advance. It helped me to improve my time management skills.”

My best experience/greatest achievement:

“My greatest achievement at my placement was being able to take a lead role in organising a hockey tournament on behalf of the school. I had so many responsibilities and targets that I needed to reach and being able to hit those targets and achieve my goals were very rewarding.”

What I learned:

“My placement involved me assisting in PE lessons and extra-curricular activities for key stage 2, 3 and 4, taking my own extra-curricular basketball and netball club and carrying out administrative roles for the PE department.”

About my experience/Tips for students:

“Make the most of your experience on your placement and take every opportunity that may come your way. You never know how many doors you can open for your future.”
