Teaching & Learning in Schools
Make a difference and inspire the next generation
You may remember a truly brilliant teacher or teaching assistant from school who made a real difference to your life. In pursuing a career in teaching 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.
