Wouldn’t it be great if you could learn a subject and work at the same time? Well now that is possible because there are various vocational qualifications that can be undertaken along with paid on the job training. There are various agencies and educational institutions that offer vocational qualifications such as teaching, plumbing, etc and then put you into a placement in that industry so that you can learn the theory behind the job as well as put it into practice.
Teaching is a popular industry that quite a lot of people want to get into now. Teaching is built up of a wide variety of disciplines and takes learning from various industries because teaching involves making candidates aware of the theories behind a particular job and therefore it requires them to not only learn that subject themselves but as an added bonus, having worked in the industry as well so that they can get of put forward a few of the experiences that they’ve had with clients and how to handle various situations and tasks.
Once the candidate has gained the qualification, they will also have completed some form of on the job training, this will overall help them to settle into the new career with ease and confidence, allowing fine transition into the new role.
One thing to note is that a fine distinction needs to be made between theory and practice because the theory may not always apply in practice. Make sense? Okay, so let’s elaborate further on this, in connection with teaching, you might find yourself in a personal situation with a candidate. However, there will be no concrete theory on how to handle situations like this and therefore the only thing that will help you in this situation is if you’ve been in the working industry before and have seen somebody else in a similar situation or if you’ve already experienced the industry before and therefore know how to handle the situation better.
