I have been involved within the Arboriculture environment for the past nine and a half years. I am currently working as a Lecturer of Arboriculture in Enfield. This role has been a challenge to me, and I have learned an awful lot. I have learnt a lot of management skills as this has been a key part of my job. I have been responsible for managing four different Level 3 courses and two level 2, and have written assignments and set projects that meet the requirements of the new syllabus.
I have been heavily involved in working with contacts outside the college, arranging guest lecturers, organising sites for the college to work on, planning and coordinating a careers day, liasing with local contractors, land owners, local authorities and important people from the Arboriculture and forestry industries. I have helped form contacts between the College and outside associations
I am keen on encouraging local people and community groups involved within their local environment. I have found it very rewarding when getting someone new involved with projects.
I have been involved in helping organise and set up a new College site in another part of London, including sourcing an office and teaching room, budgeting and ordering equipment from chainsaws to desks and chairs.
Through running my own business, I have acquired and developed good communication skills and a high standard of administrative skills.
I handled and worked to tight budgets, ensuring maximum efficiency of operations, and allowing my business to function to a high standard. Having done the accounting myself, I am familiar with Microsoft Office programmes, Excel and Word especially, which I use currently for writing lesson plans and assignments.
i am a champion on MOODLE and i have delivered training on MOODLE and MS outlook
Both teaching and running my own business has involved spending time working alone, organising and maintaining schemes of work, preparing work schedules, monitoring and organising contractors, ensuring good time management in fulfilling contracts.
I also worked well along side other contractors as part of an efficient team whilst monitoring and upholding high standards of health and safety at all times.
Another part of my job involved supervising other contractors whilst instructing and monitoring them in their working operations. Assessment of the contractor’s work ethic and ability was always paramount to ensure safety within the working environment. This also applies to teaching students to adhere to strict health and safety measures.
