I'll leave this to run now until the weekend when I'll send out payment requests. Was planning on doing this tonight, but I've been given some late work I have to deliver in lessons tomorrow. So I've a bit of reading to do.

Tomorrow will be my first lecturing sessions of 4, 1 1/2 hr sessions !!!

Technical Drawing to start with, 16-18 year olds. Just spent two hours and think I'm there ! Well at least for tomorrow ! I've also Environmental Tech later in the year.

It's an enrichment programme as students have to complete so many hours of learning each week. Theses are the brighter students who have passed Maths and English, and require top up hours. Only today though my boss has been able to advise me and confirm class sizes etc. Haven't even agreed my hourly rate ! It will be sorted I've no doubt.

My first post of this nature, I also work supporting students with learning difficulties and behaviour problems in Multi Skills (Painting, decorating, light construction) to Plumbing 1 to1 support .

Technical drawings are not that easy. My son took a subject for the last 3 years at school called Engineering Graphic Design and although he found it fascinating, it wasn't really his forte. Visualization and perspective is a big part of being able to master drawings.

I think it's great that you can impart your skill and knowledge to try and help those less academically inclined.

To be honest it's a bit of a learning curve for me. I am a qualified Teaching Assistant, but to lecture in college you don't need a teaching qualification. I joined the college last year and have got on well with staff and students. They have seen promise in me and extended me out to teach. So I'm truly honoured and obviously chuffed to bits.

Years ago I wasn't as calm and collected but I'm not fazed by anything and remain cool when things go wrong or where others may stress out these days. Obviously I'm finding my feet no with the lesson tomorrow I'm hoping I've put together day one. I've four groups to deliver too in 1 1/2 hours slots. Then I'm back in the plumbing workshop helping support adult learners.

I've also worked with adults in mental health.

FUTURE BOWL ORDERS.

I don't feel I will run another group buy. The potters are happy to take single orders and to post them out to UK addresses.

I'll make orders and post overseas at any time. The potters aren't happy with overseas as they have lost out in the past due to exchange rates and not using PayPal making it a problem for them.

Reason for me not doing any more group buys is simply that working full time and having to work on lesson plans mean I'm much busier than in the past. Apologies everyone, it's no reflection on people on here, everyone always been top notch.

Thanks for taking this on Northam Saint. I'm sure it entails lots of time and effort .. If not for you, I'd never have had the opportunity!
