Introducing our new Teaching Staff for September: Sana Rasoul

26 Jun 2017

As the exam season is almost over, we look ahead to September 2017; we are delighted to announced that Sana Rasoul will join the College as Teacher of Government, Politics and History. You can get to know her a bit better through this short Q&A.

Tell us about yourself

I started off working for the educational sector as a market and data analyst for companies such as Pearson Education and TES Global. I started teaching in 2013 at David Game College, running the University Foundation Programme in Politics and Sociology before moving to Lansdowne College to teach Politics and History. I earned my Bachelors in Politics at SOAS University, and earned my MSc in International Politics at the same institution straight after.

Why did you choose a career in education?

I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and enjoy the dynamic environment in which I get to pass this on in the education sector. No one day is the same, and that is what is so exciting about teaching. There is a real joy and fulfilment in pushing students to do the very best they can.

Why did you want to join EIC as a teacher?

I had heard about the role through a colleague and knew of the excellent reputation that EIC has. There appears to be a real emphasis on academic rigour which I believe is a very important in ensuring success.

What do you hope to provide for EIC students, and what can students who will study your subjects at the College from September expect in terms of their teaching and learning in these subjects?

I hope to broaden students' minds when discussing political and historical development, to think critically and develop confidence in their own analysis and arguments. Students will come to realise that education is not just about exams, but also about developing as individuals and learning not only from myself, but from each other.

In your view, what is a good education and how do you ensure to provide that to your students?

I always say a good education is reflected in the level of involvement students have with the course. Students are always welcome to express concerns, worries or questions about the course to ensure that they are able to fully participate in lessons. I encourage students to keep open communication with each other as well as myself to ensure that they do not lag behind in their studies and have a solid support network around them.

What advice would you give to students who are nervously awaiting their GCSE and A-Level results this August?

Get some ice-cream and enjoy the sunshine! You deserve it…

We very much look forward to having Sana join the College in September 2017.
