  • Strong resilience and awareness of the demands of the profession
  • A genuine interest in young people and how they learn best
  • Some ideas about what makes an effective teacher and a less effective one
  • An ability to reflect on experience
  • An ability to accept and act upon advice.
  • An ability to reflect on experiences of working with young people in schools or other contexts.
  • An ability to communicate with young people and engage children
