Good Day everyone. I have searched these forums and cannot find anything to do with careers or university counselling posts, which I guess says a good deal about the TES as a ( British) publication! Anyway, I am working in Bangkok at what others seem to think is an excellent British school as a careers/university counsellor/form teacher/subject teacher. I just wonder if all British Schools do this. Indeed do any other International schools follow this model? In the past I have worked as a teacher, or a counsellor, the two being distinct jobs. At the moment I am wondering how schools can manage to justify to parents who pay a LOT of money for their offspring to attend but are given advice about how their futures may pan out by what are, in effect, part time teachers. I was recently at a big international gathering of counsellors from around South East Asia and it would appear that it is mainly British schools that follow this line. When I spoke to counsellors from International Schools they tended to have a discrete role within the school community. No more, even, the old outdated American model of combined university and emotional counsellor, no they have, at least, one of each now. I must say that I am a great believer in the jack of all trades master of none school of thought. How, I wonder, can a person plan, teach and deliver a subject to an examination level whilst looking after a tutor group and making sure that they keep abreast of the latest trends in university applications. Whilst people at other schools are flying hither and yon in order to visit universities and to forge relationships with admissions staff I am not allowed to go in case my Year 10 class falls behind! Anyway enough of my moaning. Is it just in Bangkok or do British schools in other far flung outposts use this model as well? Am I just being precious? Should I revel in the fact that I do three jobs, probably none to the level which I would like?
