Teaching is certainly not for the faint hearted, but it is for those that feel they have the drive to engage and inspire the next generation of pupils. A career in education allows you to follow your passions and strengths and connects your success to the achievements of your pupils. It’s a career that has tangible rewards and daily challenges, and no two days are ever the same.
With teaching you can make a difference
When The Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) union surveyed its trainee and newly qualified teacher members, it found that 75% chose to join teaching because of a desire to make a difference. 80% said they taught because they enjoyed working with children.*
Teaching is more than just a job. It’s one of the most valuable contributions you can make to society. The satisfaction of changing lives every day and watching your pupils grow into confident and capable adults is unmatched – it’s a feeling that only those working in education can truly experience.
As a teacher, you can shape young minds and breathe life into the curriculum by passing on your knowledge and demonstrating your passion. As your students become more engaged and motivated, there’s nothing quite like watching them succeed, like that moment when a complicated topic finally ‘clicks’ or when their enthusiasm for your class lights up the room.
How to kickstart your career in education
You don’t need a degree to kick off your career in schools. There are numerous roles in the education sector that you can get involved in. A career in education can also offer you stability, with a regular routine and a clear career path which enables you to advance in your field, as well as new opportunities to work in different areas of the school or even to progress to a leadership role.
To make a difference in the education sector, connecting with your students is the first priority – the rest can be taught.
