And the best teachers get the best rewards.
Working with young people is fun! They are creative, inquisitive and inspiring, meaning no two days are ever the same. You will never ever spend your days clock watching.
The potential for career progression in Teaching is vast. Typically, the best teachers are in positions of leadership within 4 years of their training. There are many opportunities for career diversification too; as a teacher you will develop a skillset which is highly sought after by the world’s best employers. And we didn’t even mention the potential for long summer holidays travelling the world!!
But if you can help to develop one child’s self-confidence so they can make friends, or stop just one child from dropping out, or enable one child to get the grades to go to university, you will gain the best rewards: those that can’t be measured.
If you’ve got what it takes, it’s the best job in the world.
