Advice

Go for it!. I was one of over 60 applicants – I did not expect to get the role but applied anyway. If you want to do something then just go for it.

ESTA  (Earth Science Teachers Association) has been a great resource to me as a teacher, providing me with links and support. I would recommend that all teachers of Earth Sciences join – whatever age groups they teach.
