Why to train become a teacher?

Pursuing a career as a teacher is a life-changing decision with numerous rewards. These include great job satisfaction, a skill set that enables you to impact on the lives of the children you teach as and influence the society in which they live. In addition, there are lots of opportunities to climb the career ladder and fulfil your potential.

Becoming a teacher, you will:

  • have the chance to inspire and educate young people every day
  • have no two days the same
  • make an impact on the society by shaping the next generation
  • learn a set of transferable and recognised skills that will benefit your career progression
  • be part of a large community
  • have the privilege of job security

If you want to learn more about the benefits of teaching, possible routes into work and career opportunities, please book your place for the talk delivered by David Wells, Head of Department of Teaching Education. This will be followed by Q&A session for any specific queries.
