Unit 3 Career 2. Amanda My sister Charlotte was born when I was seven and my mother decided she needed a nanny to look after us. So we got Alison. She was very young, seventeen I think, and wonderful. I adored (worship, love) her. She only worked part-time with us before she started her training at Norland College. She had to dress us in the morning and take me to school. After school she made us delicious teas and read us stories in bed. On Charlotte’s birthday she organized a fantastic party. part-timemade usdelicious read us
Text Unit 3 Career 3. When Alison left, we had a trained nanny who lived with us and worked fulltime. She was called Nanny Barnes by everyone, including my parents. She was older and quite traditional and wore a uniform. It was then that I realized that I wanted to be a nanny. I have always got on well with children. I have always enjoyed taking care of my sister and younger cousins. I told Mummy very firmly that I wanted to be a nanny when I grew up. At the time she laughed. I know that she and Daddy thought it was just a childish phase I was going through, but it wasn’t. They thought I would follow in my father’s footsteps and study law; But I didn’t. There were some terrible rows (65) but I didn’t go to university. I left school and spent a year working at Ludgrove School, where Prince William used to go. Then I started my training course at Norland College. I finished the course last month and I’ve applied for the post (position,occupation) of nanny to twins aged six months. Mummy and Daddy weren’t angry for long. We made it up before I went to college, and they have encouraged me ever since 从那时到现在.woreuniformgot on well with At the timephasegoing throughfollow in my father’s footsteps applied for longmade it up
Text Unit 3 Career 4. Amanda’s Mother Her father is still a wee bit （ little bit) disappointed that she didn’t take after him and study law, but I think we’re both proud, and also pleased, that she has made her own decisions in life and done so well. We have brought her up to be an independent thinker, so we can’t complain. Everything has turned out for the best. I had a nanny when I was a child but I never thought of being one myself, but times have changed and “nannying” has been socially acceptable for a long time. It wasn’t just Princess Diana who made it fashionable!a wee bit take after made her own decisions brought her upturned outthought of
Background Information Unit 3 Career 1. Choosing your career Your career choice determines the course that your life will take — it determines how successful you are, how happy you are and whether you live a good, bad or indifferent life. You have to think through what you want to achieve with your life in important areas such as your career, your family, artistic or sporting goals and public service. A crucial part of this is setting priorities in these different areas. No one has the time to excel in all areas — if the major focus of your life is to spend a lot of time with your family and contribute to voluntary organizations, then you must recognize that this will limit the time and effort you can dedicate to your career.
Background Information Unit 3 Career If you want to focus exclusively on your career, then you must understand and manage the consequences. Bear in mind that your priorities will probably change over time — many people focus completely on their careers in their twenties as they make a place for themselves in the world. In their thirties, they may take more of a family focus, and other things may become important later on — this is a normal part of life.
Unit 3 Career 2. Planning your career In order to choose an appropriate career which suits your abilities, skills, ambitions and ideals, you have to plan your career very carefully. Here are the steps you can follow: 1) Develop a career plan. Think about what you want to do and find out more about the kind of training, education, and skills you will need to achieve your career goal. 2) Assess your skills and interests. Think hard about what you enjoy, what you are good at, what kind of personality you are, and the values you hold. Background Information
Unit 3 Career 3) Research occupations. Find out more about the nature of the jobs that interest you, such as educational requirements, salary, working conditions, future outlook, and anything else that can help you narrow your focus. 4) Compare your skills and interests with the occupations you’ve selected. The career that matches your skills, interests, and personality the closest may be the career for you. 5) Choose your career goal. Once you’ve decided what occupation matches up best with you, then you can begin developing a plan to reach your career goal. Background Information

The Gardener Unit 3 Career 1. Hugo Grantchester, 26, has been a gardener and a tree surgeon for four years. He went to Oxford University to study archaeology, but he dropped out after just one term. His father, Hector, is a surveyor and his mother, Geraldine, is an interior designer. Hugo and his mother talk about his choice of career.gardener surgeonOxford University archaeologydropped out surveyorinterior designer Text
Unit 3 Career 2. Hugo When I was 11, we moved to a large Tudor house in East Anglia which had three acres of garden. We had a gardener who lived in a little cottage at the end of our drive. I used to spend hours watching him work and talking to him. I think I picked up a lot about gardening without realizing it, because one summer, when I was still at school, I took a job at a garden centre and I knew all the names of the plants, and I could give people advice. Then I went to university and it was a disaster. After a term, I told my parents that I was going to give it up and go back to work in the garden centre. They were furious. We had a terrible row, and they didn’t speak to me for months. But I knew it was a waste of time to carry on studying archaeology, and the moment I started gardening again, I knew I’d made the right decision. I’ve enjoyed every moment of the last four years and my parents have learnt to accept what I do, not only because they can see how happy I am, but also because a lot of my university friends have found it difficult to find good jobs or have been made redundant. Sometimes people are quite taken aback when they find out that their gardener went to university, but I think it makes them respect my opinion more when I’m helping them plan their gardens.Tudor house acres drivepicked up furiouscarry onthe momentmade the right decisionenjoyed every moment ofredundanttaken abackmakes them respect Text
Unit 3 Career 3. Hugo’s Mother His father and I were so delighted when he went to Oxford, but when he gave it up so soon, we were very, very angry. We thought manual labour was not the career for our only son. We fell out for months. Hector refused to allow Hugo into the house, and we all felt thoroughly miserable. But our daughter told us not to worry because Hugo would be a millionaire by the time he was forty. Anyway, we’ve made it up now we can see how happy he is, even though he hasn’t become a millionaire yet! Times have changed and all kinds of people do all kinds of work, and I think the world’s a better place for it!delighted manual labouronly sonfell out miserablemillionaire Text
