Starting A Teaching Career

Taking the first steps to start your career in teaching can be a daunting task. Knowing where to begin and what to expect can be difficult, so let us share with you the easiest way to begin this dream career.

To get started in teaching, most people decide to go to university. This is the easiest way to gain a teaching degree which helps you to easily gain employment within teaching once completed. Like any other degree, this will take around 3 years o further education, work experience, and lectures before you finally have your degree.

Now, we know going to university is not on the cards for everyone. It is expensive, and some people have different plans and then go back to their first initial dream. If this is you, the university is not the only way, there are other options. Some schools offer part-time and full-time placements, where you can work within the school whilst learning how to become a teacher or teaching assistant. This is great if you are better at learning on the job.
