Study Abroad in London

London — Get To Know Europe’s Biggest City!

London is the most exciting city in which to live and work. It is a huge multicultural, noisy metropolis that will challenge everything you thought you knew about the Brits.

Whether you’re interested in music, clubbing, eating out, theater, the arts, history or sports, London has it all. From the legendary King’s Road through the bustle of street markets such as Brick Lane and Portobello, to the world-famous Harrods, there is shopping to suit every style and taste.

London is a world financial and commercial center, as shown by an ever-changing skyline of award-winning, twenty-first century architecture. For business, politics, media and public life, this is the center of the UK.

Living in London

London is more like a patchwork of neighborhoods, so it’s an easy city to settle into and get to know despite its size and vibrancy. It is also very easy to get around thanks to an extensive public transportation system.

If a "big city" environment doesn’t sound like your thing, don’t worry. London is a green city. There are many spacious parks and quiet squares in its center and wide open spaces on its outskirts.

The EPA London program not only set me up with a terrific internship; they also were an active part of my experience. They took us on a Thames river cruise and a tour of Greenwich, and hosted a fantastic going away dinner at a historic London pub. I really enjoyed every aspect.

The highest paying internships forbes

The Highest-Paying Internships

What do Palantir, VMware, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook have in common? Aside from all being tech companies based in the Bay Area, they pay their interns more than any other companies in America, according to a survey released by career website Glassdoor. Based on salary reports posted by at least 20 interns per company between January 2012 and January 2014, the survey reveals that interns at these firms earn an average of more than $6,200 a month. Annualized, that would be nearly $75,000 a year, well above the median U.S. household income of $53,000, according to the U.S. Census. It seems that the bidding war for tech talent starts earlier than entry-level hires.

Glassdoor describes itself as a kind of TripAdvisor for careers, because users post reviews of the companies where they work, giving it a huge repository of information about employers, including salaries.

The high intern salaries are especially striking in the context of the recent controversy about the legality of internships that pay less than the minimum wage, a practice that has been common in the publishing, fashion and entertainment business. But since last June, when a federal judge ruled in favor of production interns who had toiled for free at movie studio Fox Searchlight Pictures on the film Black Swan. interns have been protesting and filing lawsuits. Employers are either fighting back, paying more or dumping their internship programs altogether. In October, Condé Nast announced it was canceling internships at all of its magazines. In June, former interns at two Condé Nast magazines, The New Yorker and W. had filed suit, contending they were paid as little as $12 for 12-hour shifts.

That’s a far cry from the $42 an hour interns make at Palantir, the Palo Alto software company whose clients include the FBI and the CIA. It tops the Glassdoor list with a reported monthly intern salary of $7,000 (equaling a yearly salary of $84,000). The company currently lists 10 open internships. Most require programming skills but there’s one title I find especially intriguing: “Evangelism intern,” based in McLean, VA, home to the CIA. That job sounds like a combination of programming and lobbying. The description: “we introduce and explain Palantir to smart and powerful people – politicians, journalists, leading researchers, influential bloggers, government types, and business leaders in Washington and beyond.” If I were 20 years old and knew my way around Python and Java, I might want to apply.

Second on the list is VMWare, the cloud computing pioneer, also based in Palo Alto. The reported monthly internship salary there is also $7,000 ($6,966 to be precise, compared to Palantir’s $7,012, but I’m rounding for this story). There are some 50 open internships on the company site. Most have demanding requirements, like computer science degrees and skills with technologies that are totally unfamiliar to humanities majors like me (JQuery, JQuery UI, Bootstrap). VMware is a global employer, with internship jobs in Bangalore, Israel, Paris, Sao Paulo the U.K. and Ireland, as well as on its Palo Alto campus.

In third place: Twitter, in San Francisco, which reportedly pays $6,800 a month. In all, 19 of the top-25-highest-paying firms are technology companies, including, not surprisingly, Microsoft Microsoft. eBay, Google, Apple Apple and Yahoo Yahoo. There are four oil and gas companies on the list, ExxonMobil, which pays the most, at $6,000 a month, Chevron Chevron at $5,400, ConcoPhillips, also at $5,400 and Schlumberger at $4,600. But the oil and gas companies have slipped in their positions on the list in the last year, when ExxonMobil was No. 1 at $6,500, and ConocoPhillips was No. 5 at $5,800. This year there only two financial firms make the top 25, BlackRock, which pays $5,100 a month and Capital One, which pays $4,900.

For the complete list of 25 companies, see our slide show above.

Special educational needs – Educational Psychology Service

Latest

What is an educational psychologist?

An educational psychologist provides guidance and support to schools on a range of issues including special educational needs. They work with parents, carers and practitioners to identify and support the special educational needs of individual children both at home and school.

All educational psychologists have qualifications in psychology and educational psychology. They may also be qualified teachers with teaching experience in schools.

How can an educational psychologist help my child?

Educational psychologists help children from nursery school through to the age of 19. They assess how best to help your child through observing and working with them at home and school. They will meet with you, with teachers and other professionals involved with your child.

The educational psychologist works closely with you and the staff at your child’s school to plan a programme of support for your child. This programme of support may include:

  • special training for your child’s teachers
  • extra help with literacy
  • classes to improve language skills
  • helping your child to make friends and improve their social skills.

The plan is reviewed by both you, the school and the educational psychologist to make sure your child’s needs are being met.

How can I get help from an educational psychologist?

Usually, the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) at the school will contact an educational psychologist after deciding that your child might benefit from their help. The school would then contact you to ask for your permission to provide this specialist support and ask your views on what you think will help your child.

If you think your child needs help but you have not been contacted by the school then you should speak to your child’s teacher or the SENCo at the school.

Leaflets for more information

If you want to read more, there are two educational psychology leaflets to download:

  • ‘Educational Psychology Service – information for parents and carers’
  • ‘Educational psychologist – who’s that?’ A guide for children and young people.

The educational psychologist the educational psychologist sen professional help the good schools guide

The Educational Psychologist

Educational Psychology is the art of diagnosing the reasons for a child’s behaviour or learning difficulties.

A good educational psychologist will spend time getting to know your child, either by observing them in a variety of settings or, taking time to put a child at ease before beginning the formal assessment process. They will conduct a variety of tests and sub-tests to pin-point areas of difficulty, explain their findings in plain English and recommend strategies that will help.

The Educational Psychologist – A bit of background

Educational psychologists (EPs) have a teaching background, a first degree in psychology and a higher degree in educational psychology.

Some EPs run private practices others are employed by the LA to work in collaboration with teachers, parents, carers and other agencies to promote inclusion in schools and to develop strategies aimed at enhancing a child’s learning and development. In addition to individual casework EPs may visit schools to talk with teachers about ways of meeting the needs of individuals or groups of children. They may also work with teachers on projects that address whole school issues, run courses for school staff on particular topics of concern or interest, and meet with parents or carers who have concerns about a child.

What does an Educational Psychologist do?

EPs study how children develop, using appropriate assessment methods to identify the nature of any underlying SEN.

In addition to knowledge of specific difficulties that affect learning, for example dyslexia or autism, they can help by suggesting effective teaching and learning approaches such as positive behaviour management or ways to intervene with children and young people which help them change.

Additionally a good EPs will have a thorough grasp of current legislation, local policy, procedures and national research.

Consulting an EP

When an EP is asked to become involved with an individual child, the first step is for the school to arrange a consultation meeting that involves those who know the child well, usually parents or carers, teachers, the SENCo and the EP. The purpose of this initial meeting is to examine concerns and agree a plan of action to improve the child’s progress. This may involve the EP working with the child’s teachers or with the child directly.

Parents and carers should always be fully involved and if necessary a consultation with the child and EP will be arranged.

EPs often begin by observing the child in class as it helps to see the child in their regular environment. If a child is to have a consultation with the EP the child should, wherever possible, be prepared for this. There is no right way but it is usually best to be as truthful as possible, explaining in a way that the child will understand and will not frighten or intimidate him. (Ask the EP for Leaflets/ help sheets that advise on what to tell a child about an EP).

When child and EP meet

When EPs meet with children they will try to establish what the child believes their own strengths and difficulties are.

Usually they will either do some assessment work with the child or talk with the child about ways to cope better with their difficulties. Assessment of a child by an EP will help identify the nature and extent of any SEN. Feedback may be given in a variety of ways: verbally, in writing or through further meetings. EPs can refer a child to other sources of help such as Child and Family Consultation Services, crucially they have a key role to play in the preparation of a Statement for a child with SEN. When the involvement of the EP comes to an end, parents or carers and schools should be given a written report detailing the EPs involvement.

Don’t be afraid of taking your child to an EP: a diagnosis makes it much easier for everyone – you, the school, and above all the child (‘thank goodness, I thought I was stupid’) – to deal with the problem. In case of doubt, and if you can afford the fee, get a second opinion.

Finding an Educational Psychologist

Since July 2009 the term ‘Educational Psychologist’ has been regulated by the Health Professions Council (HPC). HPC has a list of certain titles (e.g. ‘Educational Psychologist’, ‘Speech and Language Therapist’, ‘Occupational Therapist’ and many others) that may now only legally be used by people registered to the HPC. To remain registered practitioners need to not only have passed certain inital qualification hurdles but also must demonstrate, if requested, that they have done ongoing continued professional development. Parents can search the HPC database at www.hpcheck.org to check that a practitioner is HPC registered.

Hiyah net free educational software for children

Welcome to

My name is Sara. I have 2 boys who both showed an interest in the computer, but didn’t know how to use the mouse or keyboard. Since there was nothing on the market to meet their needs, I developed a series of educational computer software programs that they could operate on their own by simply pressing the spacebar. I am making these programs available at no charge to any parent or teacher who thinks they may be able to use them.

The programs are based on high interest subjects, such as nursery rhymes, holidays, and birthday themes. The software keeps children engaged and actively learning. And for children with limited language skills, my programs can help give meaning to words and concepts. Holidays, birthdays, going to the doctor, dentist, or getting a haircut, are all broken down into sequential steps to thoroughly explain the event.

This educational software is made for children 18 months to 6 years of age (or higher for children struggling with language delays due to autism or other causes).

Top 10 Jobs in Information Technology

Top 10 jobs in information technology

Information technology – often shortened to just IT – is a buzz phrase you’ve probably heard ad nauseum if you happen to work with IT personnel or went to school for anything related to computers. IT workers are highly specialized in their field, which is probably why they’re often just called “IT nerds.” They like what they do and understand it inside and out. IT workers are also essential to just about every modern business model. If a company relies on phones and emails, chances are that there’s an IT professional behind it all making sure the cogs in the machine function properly.

So what’s the real benefit of being the behind-the-scenes technological lifeblood of a company? Excellent pay is your reward, more often than not. As the economy finds its footing and more jobs open up. expect the requirements of IT professionals to be vast as ever. Curious what you might like to do and how much someone will pay you to do it? Consider these 10 leading fields and their median salary ranges.

1. IT consultant

Ranking number 13 on CNN’s most recent Best Jobs in America list, the work of being an IT consultant is as vague as it sounds. In this position, your job is to evaluate the systems and do the research that no one else entirely understands. As CNN puts it, everyone from local startups to the Fortune 500 companies need IT consultants to help them figure out the cheapest and fastest ways to run computers better.

Education: A bachelor’s degree in computer science definitely helps, like most positions on this list. CNN also recommends that an IT consultant specialize in a niche category to help focus on the kind of experience he or she gets.

Salary: $96,400, according to CNN.

2. Cloud architect

You’ve heard of cloud computing of course. Although that storage space existing in the ether can’t be touched literally, it still needs to be organized and given an architecture. That’s what this job is for.

Education: A bachelor’s degree.

Salary: $112,000, making it one of the highest paying IT jobs.

3. Computer forensic investigator

Computer crime detectives – The Best Schools reports that computer forensic investigators search for, identify and evaluate information from computer systems, often for trial evidence.

Education: TBS says that you’ll need a degree in computer forensics, information security or cyber security. Certification from a computer examiner board also helps.

Salary: $64,000 according to TBS.

4. Health IT specialist

Health IT is a blossoming field, especially with major changes going on in healthcare due to the Affordable Care Act and the gradual transition to electronic health records. Health IT specialists will mix computer knowledge will record-keeping skills, but specialties in medical coding, billing and cancer registry are also in demand, according to TBS.

Education: While some health IT jobs require only an associate degree and/or certification, supervisory technician positions call for bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

Salary: $45,000, according to TBS.

5. Mobile application developer

Chances are that you and most people you know have smartphones and/or tablet computers. According to CareerRealism, the use of mobile tech is predicted to exceed personal computers at some time in 2013, so businesses are more heavily relying on IT professionals with experience in this field than ever before. Using basic coding languages, developers will create programs for future iOS and Android devices.

Education: A bachelor’s in software engineering, computer science, mobile computer or related fields, according to TBS.

Salary: $90,000 with high growth outlook, reports TBS.

6. Web developer

Web developers are jacks of all trades. They create web pages, web applications and web content, but their skill? set requires them to have excellent understanding of what makes a good operating system, what the average surfer finds visually stimulating and how to optimize sites for mobile tech, among numerous other skills. They also need proficiency in Web languages, like HTML and Javascript.

Education: TBS reports that the road to web design can be learned through accredited degree programs, but many web developers are self taught and use their “portfolios” to win positions.

Salary: $90,000, according to TBS.

Education: According to TBS, a bachelor’s degree in software engineering or a related field is best.

Salary: $89,000 according to TBS.

8. Information technology vendor manager

Slightly more hands-off compared to some tech positions, vendor managers oversee supply when it comes to software and hardware. This can mean anything from Microsoft’s latest word processor to health IT programs for hospitals.

Education: Computer science degrees are helpful, but a deep understanding of business or even an MBA could clinch a job.

Salary: $88,000, reports TBS.

9. Geospatial professionals

Sound confusing? Geographic information systems are complicated, but exciting and getting moreso every day. GIS tech uses geographic data to evaluate and communicate trends and patterns in visually stylish and comprehensive ways, according to CareerRealism.
