Thinking of changing career?
From working in banking to becoming a business and economics teacher….
“There were so many rules in banking and so little flexibility over my day to day tasks. Becoming a teacher gave me so much everyday freedom. I can choose how I teach each lesson, I can be as creative as I want, and I get to make a difference to young people.
