Hello Heads I'm just after your thoughts/experience/needs. I have worked in the Education sector for a number of years, mainly through supporting students both academically and most recently pastorally. I enjoy supporting students with various needs and something which I proclaim to be my niche! I've been thinking for some time about setting up a small business within the sector and have been working on a short course/workshop which would be delivered to identified students over a period of weeks. I do understand that some of you will employ staff such as Learning Mentors/Pastoral Support to do some of these things that i'm thinking of, and therefore my ideas may not even be viable. My questions are: What topics/areas would you like to be delivered to students' which cannot be delivered via Teachers/Support staff due to time constraints etc? Do you budget for outside agencies to come into School/College to deliver workshops or is everything in house? Finally, am I living in dreamland trying to even set something up like this? Your time and thoughts would really be appreciated. Thank you.
