I don't actually think that's a good idea, considering the libel laws.

We could make this more of a 'what makes a good/bad tutor'

Sure that would be OK!

hello,

i have been tutoring for around 8 years now and was very aprehensive when i started. it is a bit like the first time you do karaoke or a best man speech:good luck: it is a form of public performance.

i am lucky and found quite quickly that i liked doing it and my audience seemed to agree!

what i wanted to say is that in all the years since i have met a lot of bad ones on my travels, either:

blaggers, reading the book out and not expaining it.....

academics, have degrees but cannot wire a warehouse....

the old saying goes, "Those who can't, teach" unfortunately it is partially true.

and me? ah well i am different.....i am not an academic but had the ultimate apprentiship and then spent 25 years+ putting it in so i am indestructable:z

joking aside, i am training to be a professional teacher now and they show me "new" ways of doing it. i sort of resist. the best learning aid is stories and anecdotes....

BTW to work at a private training company, you need NO qualification whatsoever....

I applied for a couple of teaching/ instructing posts at Techs up here but didnt get them. They were offering to trainb as you went so to speak. As long as you had the experience and some BTECs C&Gs behind you they would put you through the training. Unfortunantely didnt even get an interview but it is something I'd really like to do.

For me I think any lecturer needs to have been hands on the tools.

When I was at college mine had been in the industry since leaving school in the darkages (thats what he used to tell us) & was/is still running his own electrical business.

He wasnt the best at the sitting down & off the board work but he used to give it the "Oh f*** it come on down the workshop & I'll show you"....happy days.

He even used to bring in prospective job's/employers to see us & gave a few of the lads who weren't employed a start in the game.

Still bump into him at the wholesalers....
