Re: voluntary work placement.

Dear sir/madam,

My name is ....., mum of two. I am enrolled on a cache course teaching assistant level2 and as part of the course I am required a placement of 6 hours a week from k1 upwards. I am writing to you to asked if you have any needs for helpers around our school. I understand it a very busy school and a good reputation. Over the last 5 years I had develop a passion for teaching. I have helped and taught Sunday school for the last 7years. I have being around the youth and children work ministry at church from my early teens and therefore perceive this to be a hobby not a career. Since my son has started school I have help at his school, from going forest school to helping with school trips. My first inspiration for teaching came to light after having my children, from seeing them develop and their faces when they just learn new things. I also wanted to spend as much time with them as possible and teaching offered me the flexibility to be with them on school holidays. My main inspiration was growing up seeing my dad turning the lives of young boys about as a headmaster, really made me think I could do this professionally. Thought, my neither university qualification nor college are in teaching, I believe I could use some of my knowledge of some aspects of law to help me identify some welfare issues that arises in an around the classroom. I am a strong believer that a happy environment helps and facilitate teaching. I am also very keen to use my language skills. Discovering my love for helping and supporting others I decided to take this course to help me acquire the knowledge to broaden my teaching experience and very much looking forward to expand.

I will be grateful if you would offer me a place
