Things to do alongside A levelsWatch
I want to be a teacher when I am older so is there anything outside of school I can do to improve my chances of achieving this?
At the moment I am currently doing the following :
Psychology prefect (if my application is successful)
A managing anxiety and depression course on future learn
Looking at being a student mentor at school (tutoring younger students)
I have a weeks work experience working in a primary school and am due to gave another 2 weeks work experience working in a school in july.
I feel this is not enough , I need something to make me stand out. A lot of people in my year did D of E and NCS but I am very shy so was not confident enough to do so.
I am looking at getting a job but there isn't many around atm...I've applied for a paper round simply because I need money😩
Any help would be appreciated.
This is similar to the student mentor, but you could ask one of your teachers if you could help teaching a year 7/8 class once a week for the whole year. I done this in year 12 and it means you get to make relationships with younger students in the school as if you were a teacher and gives you a lot of work experience and an amazing reference from the teacher you have helped out.
It's best to learn how to cope with homesickness now rather than later in life as you'll probably study away from your home (unless there's a uni where you live that you want to go to) when you do your degree.

BSc Health and Social Care - pending
I'm applying to be a prefect in a different subject today as well as a student mentor.
I am then going to do some MOOC's as I think they are quite beneficial.
Regarding to UCAS Points as well, it's slightly annoying as I play the piano outside of school but as I have never been graded I cannot get any UCAS points from it.
