    (Original post by fcmcmurray)
    I'm a current HG and I'd say it's probably a really good idea to go for it. It did end up in my personal statement and it's been in every work experience and degree apprenticeship application I've put in. For me, it's been really useful because I've been googled a few times by potential employers and that's one of the things that shows up, as well as providing a talking point as part of my CV.

    Quite honestly, I love public speaking, and giving a speech was part of the application process, but as soon as I got the post every speech I've given since has been written on a piece of paper and all I've had to do is read. If you're scared of public speaking or don't think you're very good, still apply because it'll be an opportunity for you to hopefully overcome those fears.
    Thank you so much for the help, the public speaking part is the bit I am most worried about. As part of my application process I don’t have to give a speech but I have to do an interview with various teachers but I know that if I do get the role then a lot of speeches will be involved. Thank you for the help though, I really do appreciate it
