Why Teach?

More of the best graduates and professionals are training to teach.

That’s because there are more great reasons to pursue a career in teaching than ever before. You can benefit from financial support during your training, and once you’ve qualified you can enjoy enviable job security and a generous pension. Plus, you get the chance to inspire young people and use your skills to give something back – making sure every pupil gets the same access to a quality education and the opportunity to succeed. 

 

The job satisfaction that comes with teaching is hard to beat. It gives you the chance to inspire the next generation and make a  lasting difference to young people’s development.  It’s also a career that’s full of opportunities for you to discover and hone a range of new skills. As a teacher, you’ll learn to be a brilliant mentor, manager and consultant.

As most teachers will tell you, there’s no such thing as a ‘typical’ day. That’s because no two days are the same – you’re unlikely to ever be bored by a lack of variety.

In addition to planning and teaching a range of engaging lessons, you can indulge your hobbies and interests as part of your work by getting involved in after-school clubs, trips or sport. But you can also rest assured that you’re joining a profession with good employment prospects and job security. And once you qualify, there are lots of chances for good teachers to climb the career ladder.
