How do I get teaching experience? Is it best to find experience through teaching assistant jobs?
I am in the fourth year of a five year BA/MA degree program in psychology.I know that with an MA there has to be some teaching assistant jobs available at junior colleges or some adjunct lecturer positions available at senior colleges.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to build up my CV with formal teaching experiences until I get my BA… I am having trouble finding teaching assistant jobs in my current state. What kind of experience can I build in the next year that will help me get a job once I graduate? Should I get a teaching assistant job first?
However, I will not have any teaching experience at the time I apply and I was wondering if that will completely annihilate my chances of getting any teaching assistant jobs. Unfortunately, I don’t have the luxury of becoming a teaching assistant at my school because I do not have a BA yet.
I was wondering if there was anything I can do in the next two semesters so that, when I do get my MA next spring, I will be a competitive candidate for teaching assistant jobs.
I teach at a community college and we would not hire a psychology adjunct without a masters degree. I would suggest looking for a job in mental health.
What well paid teaching assistant jobs are available to someone who has 2 years teaching experience and a BA in communications?
I will have 2 years (I currently have 1) teaching experience in a private after-school English language school in Korea and my BA in Media Communications.
I like teaching assistant jobs (I’ve subbed for that position during college and really liked it.) but I know the pay is, at best, maybe 1/2 what I’m getting here.
Look into corporate training positions, either directly for a company or as part of a group that comes in and does training.
Would you recommend social work?
I graduated with a Sociology degree in 2006 and kicked about for a bit doing various jobs - currently I am doing teaching assistant jobs to try out the teaching side of things but I don’t really fancy it.
Your assessment of social work being more hands on working more closely with the problems is accurate.
What would you do in this situation?
To put this simply I’m finishing my degree in May and have applied to start an MA in September. I have received a conditional offer of a 2:1, which I initially accepted but now I am reconsidering.
Do I stick with it, and have to be financially diligent and raising the funds, or do I pull out and try and find some teaching assistant jobs to get some teaching experience for a future attempt at PGCE applications?
Depends entirely on the feedback you got from your PGCE applications.
How much will I make as a college instructor when I graduate with an MA or a Ph.d. in English?
I would like to know my expected salary as a first-year college instructor.
Do I have a chance of getting a full-time position or will I need to take on some teaching assistant jobs first?
If you do a job recruitment search, you can see that the salary varies greatly in education depending on the job type, but expect to be paid as little as 30,000 for being an assistant teacher, and as much as 100,000 for teaching jobs, depending if you’re at a small rural primary school or a larger research institute or secondary school in a big city such as London, working for a company. As you can see assistant teaching jobs don’t pay much. Teaching assistants at schools are often underpaid.
