Advice on the training curriculum for new hires
Fill in carefully all the parts of the training curriculum for new hires, together with the balance of initial and final skills. This type of curriculum differs greatly from the europass curriculum and is also a tool to improve or to make the skills of teachers more visible.
As with traditional curricula, also in this case we must follow some rules very specific. For example, you need to weigh each word well to avoid repetition. We must also try to be brief enough, as far as possible and not to make it too long and heavy for the reader.
To better explain the concept, if you don’t know how to compile it, here is an example.
The experience as a volunteer teacher at Nome Scuola in Indonesia was a life-changing experience. This experience was not only significant for my teaching career, it was also very important for my personal life. Finding myself in a cultural context so different from mine meant that I could get out of my comfort zone and that I could learn from more experienced colleagues .
In short, you have to describe your experience in a synthetic way but in more detail as possible, and at the same time to understand how this experience has been important for your identity as teachers and to improve the relationship you have with teaching and teaching, as well as your way of relating to students.
