So, the dress code at my new place of work is smart/casual.
However, when the students are not in college then anything goes - jeans, shorts - as long as it is decent.
How cool is that?
While the senior management team tend to wear suits whether the students are in or not, I have no aspirations in that area.
My official title is Progress Coach.
It is a new role and there are 10 of us who have all started together.
Everyone seems very friendly and so far it seems a happy place to work.
Today, we met the rest of the staff as the teachers returned.
Tomorrow we will be helping enrol students once they have collected their GCSE results.
I can't wait to start meeting the students I will be working with.
I have been told that from now to Christmas will be the hardest term - getting to know all my students, chasing UCAS forms and writing UCAS references.
But, it can't be harder than last year with the PGCE, can it?
By the way - I have decided to have a seasonal closet clearout on ebay if anyone is interested - just click here.
