Tim Firth, Headmaster of Wrekin College, opened this term's career talks in the new Business School on Friday 13th January. He captivated his audience with his passion for teaching; his study of English Literature at University; his love of cricket and the creativity that is encompassed within the one role. There are not many professions which allow you to do something you love, carry on your hobby and develop your personality in the way teaching can. Tim suggested to the students to be a great teacher, you have to be the best version of yourself and love what you do. You need to be impatient; to challenge people and push them to their potential and beyond. He also said that there are lots of overseas opportunities and to take hold of these opportunities and run with them.
Our next speaker is Ben Nicoll on 27 January. Ben will be talking about his gap year and first year at university which will help a great many of the pupils thinking of looking into both these opportunities.
