As most teachers will tell you, there’s no such thing as a ‘typical’ day at work. That’s because no two days are the same – you’re unlikely to ever get bored by a lack of variety.
It’s also a career that offers:
- great benefits
- opportunities for you to use a wide range of skills
- the chance to inspire students in the subject you love
Make a difference and inspire the next generation
You may remember a truly brilliant teacher from school, who made a real difference to your life. As a teacher you can use your knowledge and passion for your subject to help children unlock capabilities and talents they didn’t even know they had. You’ll develop a wide range of transferable skills for yourself in the process too.
In addition to planning and teaching a range of engaging lessons, you can indulge in your hobbies and interests as part of your work by getting involved in after-school clubs, trips or sport.
When you choose to become a teacher, you’ll be joining a profession that offers a competitive starting salary with plenty of opportunity for career progression. This means you’ll not only be making a difference, you’ll be rewarded for your contributions with excellent opportunities to climb the career ladder.
A career for the future
Once qualified, there are many chances for good teachers to climb the career ladder and find opportunities for employment. Teacher training will set you up from the very beginning. The variety of opportunities available means you’re always learning as a teacher and adding to your range of professional skills. You’ll develop the talents to succeed in your career and realise many professional and personal ambitions.
Being a leader in a school could encompass a number of different roles, from taking charge of a year group or a particular key stage, all the way up to becoming a deputy or headteacher. In these areas you’ll have a large influence, setting high standards and ensuring continuous improvement throughout the school.
Focus on your subject
If you’re passionate about your subject area you can pursue a career as a head of department or even as a leading practitioner. In these positions you’ll still spend time in the classroom, but enjoy additional responsibilities – from training new teachers, to acting as a leading authority on your subject within the school.
If you’re particularly interested in ensuring the welfare of students throughout their education, a pastoral role might be for you. This can range from guiding a tutor group through school to becoming a head of year. You could also take on the role of being a mentor for young people with SEN.
