Use Your Head, Teach



In order to recruit more teachers the TDA has commissioned a set of adverts, based around the motto:

'Use Your Head, Teach'

You may have seen some of them in newspapers and on posters up and down the country. I'm not convinced about this one however.

Love that picture. One for the staffroom I think.

I can't stand those smug adverts which simply hide the reality from new recruits. They are virtually being conned into the profession.

Actually after a day at school that's what I feel like doing... so maybe it's not so far from the truth! ;-)

at least advertising standards can't complain.

as someone has to work with children, i'm proud to be one that can actually help change that kind of picture. Response to anonymous: 'being conned into a profession', hardly! Anyone with their head even vaguely screwed on, will know teaching isn't glamourous and isn't easy, but its damn rewarding especially when working with the HANDFUL of kids who have an attitude like this. Having the opportunity to shape them and change their perspective and attitude to life, is far more worthwhile than people who sit back and freely comment and happily give their opinion. Yet they'll shy away and discourage advertising that wants someone to stand up and help shape the kids that will one day run our country.
