Hear more from the team
I started as an AD after hearing about Explore from graduate-jobs.com, I didn’t know what I wanted to do do but I knew it wasn’t a desk job! After Uni, I was a retail manager and then went and taught in France. I got really excited by the variety and responsibility that I’d get as an AD.
It’s been a massive learning curve so far and I’ve had to get used to being thrown in at the deep end and taking lots of feedback which I hadn’t been used to before. But I can see myself improving and I’m keen to have an impact running my own centre as a CD one day!
A typical day at Explore Learning involves tutoring a zone of 6 children, signing the children in and out, offering feedback to the parents, playing games and ensuring Surf Club is as fun as possible as well as supporting Additional Content classes. My favourite thing about being a tutor at Explore Learning is witnessing the progress our members make first hand. It is very rewarding to see the children grow in confidence and develop their skills in front of you! I also love the atmosphere within the centre, created by the management team and the tutors. Everybody is very supportive and committed.
I read the advert for Explore Learning online and knew that I had to apply straight away, I was finishing off my Masters and hadn’t come across anything that would give me such broad business experience within an educational environment.
The high levels of expectation put upon Assistant Directors was compelling and I already knew that I would want to progress with the company.
