Paid Work Experience Opportunity: Teaching in FE

Talent to Teach in FE

This is a government funded supported work placement which aims to raise the profile of FE and teaching in FE as a career option amongst the graduate population.

Cognition have run this programme over the last 12 months, and due to the enormous success (we have placed nearly 300 students to date) we have now been asked to run the programme nationally across all of England.

Please do read the points below – as this provides more information including the restrictions on who can apply/geographical locations etc.

  • Placements are only open to home or EU final degree or post grad students studying at an English University.
  • We are running the programme nationally, therefore students are welcome to apply from all locations across England.
  • We are keen to encourage applications from students who have never thought of teaching, or indeed teaching in FE as a career option. Students who are taking teaching qualifications (such as PGCE) are not those we wish to encourage to apply as they are already actively considering teaching and on this career path.
  • We are keen to place students now (over May and June) and potentially over the summer with Independent Training Providers, as this time tends to work very well for final year students given they have mostly completed exams/dissertations, and are able to complete the work placements over a week or so.
  • Placements are for 40 hours, students are supported as they will have a mentor and will have time to complete a reflective journal. Students are also paid a £300 tax free bursary and will receive a Certificate of Completion which they can use as evidence for their CV etc.
  • Students who are interested in applying, need to complete a very short application form which can be found on by clicking on the following link T2TFE.

Trials and tribulations of Thursdays Top Tips

Hello everyone, for weeks I have been trying to launch a mini video series that I will dub Thursdays Top Tips. This is in a bid to give a more personal presentation for some of our information. I personally had a chunk of time off and wasn’t able to actual film the clips ready to use before my holiday so that has delayed the efforts somewhat, I apologise. If you follow our Instagram you will have seen that I had said I will be introducing this soon.

After returning I filmed the intro and first episode ready to upload but have then hit odd roadblocks in trying to post it out for you guys. As the original idea was to have these on Instagram we tried to keep them short just as 30 sec – 1 minute videos which I’ve seen before on Instagram (Video 1 the introduction was 43seconds and video 2 the first episode about My Career Enriched was 31seconds these times include the titlecards/splashcreens I was using). But it wouldn’t let me upload them from either to Instagram or Facebook via the sites directly or the social media manager we use. I have checked file types and sizes which should be useable but still get an error message when trying to upload them and this has been attempted with both the raw video file and my edited version where I’ve trimmed the start and end of the clip as well as adding a title card.

I also went to find a PC designed for video editing so that I could use adobe premiere to trim and edit certain parts and convert it form a .mov to .mpeg4 even through Facebook says it accepts both formats I attempted to eliminate this potential issue. Via premiere and media encoder I cut down the file size as well, although again checking what you can upload this was well within a usable range. I still had no luck in uploading, at this point it had been attempted directly from the iPhone, my workstation and the editing suite still with no luck.  It has allowed me to upload it to my personal Facebook page but not the Careers Page.

The Video editing Suite

On a side note whilst using the video uploader in Facebook I also played around with adding subtitles, although the auto generated ones didn’t quite work manually typing them in was easy enough once I got the hang of it. If I do find out how to get the videos up I will aim to utilise this feature so the videos are more accessible.

I might have to scrap the video idea and just present this information with images.

But: What’s your opinion? Should I keep trying to get the videos up? Have I overlooked an obvious fix?
