As a teacher you get the opportunity to make a difference to live's of young people. It's extremely rewarding and allows you to use your skills to give something back.
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 that 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.
You can also earn more by taking on extra responsibilities such as teaching and learning responsibilities (TLR) and special educational needs (SEN).
