Buying shoes isn’t as easy as you would think. You need to think about style, comfort, quality and cost, but overall it’s about the practicality and whether it’s fit for purpose.
First you have to think about the sole. Would you prefer a leather or rubber sole? Leather is classic, but rubber offers more grip. You need to work out the environment in which these shoes will be worn, before making a decision.
Picking a colour should be easy right? Well you’d think that, but it isn’t. You need to consider what colour trousers you’ll be accompanying your shoes with. And last but not least, you need tot hink about the dreaded belt! You cannot have a belt which clashes with your shoes. Colour co-ordination is key. Never forget.
Have you recently graduated and are wondering how to go about looking for Cambridge teaching jobs? Or are you a seasoned teacher or a professional from another industry looking for a new challenge? Finding new teaching opportunities can be quite a daunting process, particularly since experienced tutors with tenure /long-standing success are often re-invited to teach every school year.

Despite this, a number of people still secure jobs in the education industry by keeping several things in mind.
Audio Books have now been around for a number of years and having apps with integrated technology to read yo you has only boosted their popularity further. In most smart phones there is a feature that allows the phone to scan and read sections of whatever your reading aloud so you can listen to it as opposed to reading it.
There are also specifically tailored apps that will download the complete selection of novels, biographies or personal interest and read it to you with the comfort of your headphones on or coming though your speakers. It is not everyone preference but it is a means to engage deeper into language, the power of good story telling and also a great alternative to being a modern zombie spending countless hours being drained by television. What’s even better with audio books is that they are not saturated with an abundance of adverts for things you don’t want technically need in your life.
With eBooks now becoming more popular than ever, what are the advantages of buying books this way? Many phone and tablet platforms now offer the purchase of digital copies of many books; these books can be purchased and downloaded to your account. One of the benefits of this is that you can download a copy of the purchased book on to more than one of your devices. Many people opt to use eBooks when on holiday as it also saves on luggage space and means that you can take many books down to the beach or swimming pool with you by only taking your phone or tablet.
You will also find that there are many eBooks that are free to download and if you are a quick reader this can save you quite a bit of money. Most eBooks allow you to preview the book and read the first few pages without having to buy where as it is not really thought of as acceptable to stand in a shop reading the pages of a book before you decide to buy it.
There are certain ‘essential’ items that students may require before they start for university, and equipment is likely to vary from course to course.
The most essential item today for a university student today is a laptop, and even though universities have their own libraries with computers they might be accessible all the time, whilst over the course of the year you need a place to store your data safely, and your won laptop or computer is the best place.
With your own laptop you can get work done in your student house or flat, and you can even take your laptop into various lessons and work on the go. Smartphones are also great and it slows a student to keep up to date with their university emails, which is essential especially in your final year where you schedule dissertation meetings with tutors.
Remember to keep your files organised throughout university, and if you have a smartphone and a laptop, you’ll certainly make the next few years a lot easier on yourself.
