SKILLS REQUIRED TO BE A TEACHER OF BUSINESS STUDIES & ICT
WHY ARE THESE SKILLS IMPORTANT?
The skills shown on the previous slide are important because good organisation skills help
know where everything is and where all the students are in the work. The understanding and
delivery of KS3/4 ICT because if you do not understand it how are you suppose to deliver it to
others and help them understand it. Commitment is vital so you turn up to work on time, come
to opening days even when your not needed, making sure you do not neglect or ignore people
who need help with the work. They need to understand what NQT or QTS stand for, which is
newly qualified teacher or qualified teacher status. Having real passion for the subject is
needed because it will influence students to enjoy it as well. A strong classroom management is
required because if you cannot keep your classroom under control students will become off
task and not to the work they should be doing. Inspiration is needed because if the teacher
doesn’t inspire you to complete the task then the student is more likely to waste their time and
not do the expected work, this would make them fall behind others. If the teacher is a good role
model students will give them respect and they will be a guide to the students. Experience with
team work is a good skill to have because school is a network of people working as a team to
provide a good outcome. If you do not motivate the children they will not bother to do work. If
you are not approachable colleagues and children will not communicate with you, making it
hard for them to get help when they are stuck or when they want confirmation if they did the
work correctly. A good skill to have is to be calm and communicate when problem solving, if you
do not have this no one will ask for help and the problems will increase. Lastly you must have
the skill to demonstrate determination with the subject because you want the best work out of
the students you teach.

Attributes needed for this job
Written and verbal skills
WHY ARE THESE ATTRIBUTES IMPORTANT?
The attributes are important because employers are looking for them. Self-
motivation is good to have because it helps the employee work well and helps
others. Respect is needed because without respect the work place would be difficult
to work in and the work produce wouldn’t be to the best of its qualities. Problem
solving is good to have because if there was a problem you could sort it within the
smallest amount of time making it less time-consuming. This also comes under time
management because managing time is vital to get the work done efficiently and in a
good timeline. Being punctual helps make you a good role model and it gives you
time to make sure everything is on the right track, this links back to time
management. Leadership will help with this job because children look up to teachers
to help them do their work. You must be determined to help your students and to do
the best you can to make sure they get on the right track. Written and verbal skills
link with planning and organising. This is because you need to have good
communication skills to get across the tasks, and good planning and organising skills
to do that as well. You need to be able to work with others as well as by yourself at
times depending on the task. You need this because team working is all about
helping other and being helped whereas being independent is important if left to do
a task alone. Dependability is knowing you can do the work without wasting time or
any other resources.
