It’s not often I see an email from the BBC sitting in my inbox at the start of the week, but switching on after the Step Teachers company conference in Tring, that is exactly what was sitting there.
A producer from Kayleigh Poacher’s daytime show on BBC Radio Norfolk was reaching out to take part in a feature called The Big Norfolk Job Hunt, highlighting local employers and what they do. As a market leader in education recruitment, this was a great opportunity to showcase the fantastic work Step Teachers do in Norfolk and beyond.
We are no strangers to The Forum in Norwich, regularly attending Job Fair events to attract local talent to work in schools across the fine city. Today though I was swapping the busy floor of the job fair for the BBC studios located on Level 1.
With minutes to go before going on air, I was terrified. I spend all day talking to teachers and support staff so you’d think I’d be in my element but this was different. I was on a local radio and the BBC at that. The production team was great though and Kayleigh was superb at making me feel very welcome - the nervousness soon disappeared.
Anyway, why don’t you listen and you can decide whether I did a good job or not?
