Where the STEM jobs are
Gradcracker works here's the proof
"It’s given me great opportunities to meet fellow physicists from across the country who want to do exactly what I want to do."
In school, I loved physics but the classes tended to bore me due to unenthusiastic teachers. At university, I found myself day dreaming during lectures about how I would teach certain physics topics in a more enjoyable way. I began tutoring maths and science and found I really enjoyed learning afresh with new pupils and I enjoyed coming up with more creative ways to understand different topics. I soon realised I wanted to be the one to make sure the next generation is more excited about physics lessons than I was.
The scholarship has given me the chance to stay in this wonderful city for another year, living right in the centre of Oxford with five other PGCE students who support and encourage me. It’s given me great opportunities to meet fellow physicists from across the country who want to do exactly what I want to do. IOP have reassured me that teaching is a worthwhile and rewarding profession and they’ve given me the courage to pursue it as a career.
