How to become an educational consultant

0 comments
I get emails on a regular basis from educators who want to start an educational consulting career, but aren’t sure how to get started. They envision themselves coaching teachers, providing professional development, and supporting schools and teachers in a variety of ways, but can’t find any formal or official way of making the career shift to educational consulting.
The first and most important step that should be taken by anyone who thinks they may want to get education consulting jobs is this:

Figure out your passion

Do you love helping teachers integrate technology into their instruction? Are you passionate about sharing best practices in a particular subject area? Does the idea of teaching other people how to reach students with disabilities make your heart pound with excitement? “Education” is a really broad area, so narrow down your area(s) of expertise.

Applying for a postdoc job? Here are 18 tips for a successful application

0 comments
Securing a postdoc position is fiercely competitive. Research carried out by Vitae, which supports the development of researchers, suggests that only 23% of doctoral graduates find employment as research staff in higher education, while 14% work as lecturers. In some subject areas, the figures are even more bleak: for arts and humanities subjects, only 14% secured a research position.
If you are one of the many hopefuls applying for a vacancy, how can you maximise your chances of standing out? We ask principal investigators and careers advisers for their advice.



Get advice from your PhD supervisor

When I talk to students individually I sometimes find they are a little reticent about asking their supervisor’s advice on becoming an academic. I don’t know if it’s because they’re concerned that their supervisor might not think they’re good enough, or because they think they will put them off it. But you need to talk to your supervisor and other academic colleagues – otherwise they won’t know what you want to do, and they won’t be able to help.

PhD Study in the USA - A Guide for 2019

2 comments
The USA isn’t just the biggest and most popular destination for PhD study abroad. It’s also one of the most unique. The US approach to postgraduate (or ‘graduate’) study is fundamentally different to the UK and Europe, involving structured degree programs that feature comprehensive training alongside independent research.


These unique qualities enhance the appeal of a US PhD (after all, tens of thousands of international graduate students can’t be wrong). But they can also lead to some misunderstandings – particularly when it comes to fees and funding.

College Interview Questions - You Should Be Prepared Of Answering

0 comments
If a college uses interviews as part of the application process, it is because the school has holistic admissions.

Rarely will you get a question that puts you on the spot or tries to make you feel stupid. Remember, the college is also trying to make a good impression, and wants to get to know you as a person.
