My studies in both History and Sociology gave me a wealth of knowledge which I now enjoy passing on to my students but I also developed skills such as data analysis (research in sociology) which I use as head of subject. Giving presentations in my special topics in History helped to develop both my confidence, and my communication and presentation skills.
What are the key skills/knowledge you use in your current role?
Communication, administration, being creative and innovative with teaching and learning, people management, observation, data analysis, budgeting and finance.
