The decision to switch careers is not an easy one, but it’s one that’s fuelled by many factors. You may be at a stage in your life where your priorities have changed, you’re seeking more flexibility or a better work-life balance. Perhaps your current role isn’t giving you job the right level of satisfaction, so you’re looking for something more inspiring. Whatever your reasons, switching to a role in education is definitely an option worth considering.
Why make the career switch to education?
- Teaching makes a difference, with visible results. One of the most popular reasons (75%) for joining teaching was a desire to make a difference*
- No two days are the same. Working with young people brings its challenges but is very rewarding – 80% of teachers said they taught because they enjoyed working with children*.
- It’s a sociable job with holidays that support different lifestyles – a schedule that works well with a range of commitments including childcare.
- The learning never stops – as well as teaching, you’re constantly building your knowledge to share with others.
No experience in education? No worries
The transferable skills you develop in different sectors can make you a real asset in a school.
“From my years at the frontline in schools, I know that skills can be taught, but natural energy and attitude are everything. That’s why we’re excited to help unlock the potential of people from outside the sector, or those just starting out in their career, who can bring invaluable transferable skills to a rewarding profession.” – James Lowe, Founder of Moxi Recruitment.
