Thinking of changing career?
From Fleet manager to Philosophy teacher…
Before teaching I was running a fleet of 70 32ft lorries, working 6 till 6 Monday to Saturday with a phone on each ear constantly. I had loved university, left and not picked up a book or newspaper for years. Now I get time to read, challenge myself and students to think deeply. Teaching provides such a diverse working life which I love. It’s great to see students really stretching themselves and tackling questions that make their brains hurt.
Chris, Philosophy teacher and Head of Department
The whole experience has been excellent. Everyone has been really helpful and I have been lucky to have a great mentor and wonderful class teachers working alongside me and offering their support. The students have made it all worthwhile – what an amazing start to a fantastic profession!
