Jennifer Okoduwa – Graduate Teacher
Arriving in the United Kingdom and searching for a teaching role, was a daunting task. Every call I made, and every application I submitted, was the same story, ‘you don’t have a QTS’, ‘I’m afraid I can’t take you up because you’re an unqualified teacher,’… without showing any willingness to listen and, see what I have to offer. The very frustrating part was that, I am an overseas trained teacher with a Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Education.
With these feedback, I was beginning to have a second thought until, I had a conversation with TeacherHub on an application I submitted. That conversation brought hope, inspiration, enthusiasm, and encouragement, I have never been so inspired ever since I started my teaching ‘pursuit’ in the UK. For me, this was the ‘turning point!’
Then, I began the process, which took almost 3 months, and I was never alone! TeacherHub followed up all the way, I received counselling and advice on how to go about ‘things’, TeacherHub showed and demonstrated care, service, guidance… throughout the period. Today, I am happy to say I am able to secure a teaching role in a choice school, not just teaching but also, an admission to study in the University of Hertfordshire, for one year, with all expenses paid!
