As a teacher you have the opportunity to change a child’s life forever.
It takes a very special person to be a great teacher. Great teachers love their subjects and inspire young people and their colleagues to love learning too.
They are committed to ensuring every child succeeds, regardless of their background.
Great teachers equip young people with the knowledge, skills and experiences they need to make informed choices about their futures.
‘Mrs McMillan, my maths teacher was the only teacher that worked out I had potential and was far more academic than I had been labelled. She pushed the hell out of me! Sure it was only to push me from a D to a C but I know that was a sign of care for me as an individual. What she did for me inspired me to do what I’m doing now, without a doubt.’
Shaun Lever, Commercial DJ and recent Trainee Teacher
‘Miss Beryl Gresty was my French teacher in my first year at Secondary School. I broke my knee and was off for eight weeks, returning just before the French exam. When the results came out she praised everyone but singled me out saying; “especially Marie Claire (we all had to have French names) after being absent and missing so much.” I have never forgotten her and how she made me feel on a nervous return to classes. Encouragement is precious.’
Mary Maden, Chairman of AODS
‘Mrs.Tempest encouraged me to join the cross country team in Primary school. Not only did she make me believe in myself and my ability but also that I could beat the boys! Thanks to her I still run today. She helped shape my identity and gave me something to be proud of.’
Emma Tolond (MA Student)
Working with young people is more than satisfying! 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 four years of their training. There are many opportunities for career diversification too; as a teacher you will develop a skill set 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!!
If you can help to develop one child’s self-confidence so they can make friends, or help them to discover where their skills and passions lie, you will gain the best rewards: those that can’t be measured.
