To be a trainee or a trainer?
Back to work and an unusual day for me as I've been receiving training rather than giving training. I realise that I'm not a very good trainee to have in a class, as my attention span is limited and I easily get bored! As the training goes on, I find myself constantly thinking about what I would do as the trainer, how I would organise things differently. Maybe this is how a hairdresser feels when they get a haircut or a doctor when they have some treatment. What do you think?
The good thing is that the experience makes me reflect on my own work and how students probably feel in my classroom. This then gets me thinking of changes I could or should make to some of my own training. So the moral of this story is that I need to keep on learning and receiving training myself, something I theoretically know but don't always put into practice enough!
Thinking about your job search Chittisa, do you expect to receive training in your first job? Is this a topic that has been discussed in your interviews? What kind of training would you like?
