If you want to bring your passion to your job while also inspiring the next generation, a career in education could be the perfect fit for you!
We’ve shared some of the most common reasons people decide to start a career in education to help you in the process of deciding if this could be the right move for you.
Make a Difference!
Working in schools, your influence has the potential to change the lives of young people.
You'll be able to make a meaningful difference in your students’ lives, whether that's by taking the time to aid struggling students - motivating and leading them to understand their strengths and work through any limitations, or by inspiring them to discover their passions.
No Two Days are the Same!
One thing you can count on is that no two days are the same!
Every student, lesson, and day is different from the next, so if you’re someone who loves the challenge of a dynamic environment, where your day can include events, trips, or extra-curricular activities, education could be a great career move for you.
Time to Get Creative!
Being creative is an asset for most roles within schools.
As we now know, there are a multitude of ways a student can learn, including visually, auditorily, kinaesthetically, by reading/writing, analytically, linguistically, and solitarily.
It’s your time to create engaging lessons that offer fun, embedded learning!
You are in Demand!
Education is one of the most in-demand sectors in the UK.
Work is widely available across many roles and subject areas (especially core subjects).
Starting your journey as a Teaching Assistant will prepare you for your teaching career and when training to be a teacher, there are many options to get financial support or even be paid while you train!
Did Someone say Holidays?
Last but not least, holidays!
