  • It expands your network and helps you make professional contacts.
  • It gives you the chance to reflect on your own professional practice.
  • It informs you about the daily joys/struggles of the profession and its limitations

JOB SHADOWING FOR TEACHERS AND OTHERS

Job shadowing describes a type of work experience where participants learn about an occupational area of interest by following a competent worker closely in their day-to-day tasks. Participants of this work-based course basically act as a shadow to a number of key workers across a few organisations, learning the daily practices of the company as well as improving their English skills in real-life situations along the way. 


Job Shadowing placements are for a minimum of one week to a maximum of two months.
