Working as a teacher in UK

Posted on March 30, 2019 at 11:51 am

Teaching can be an extremely rewarding job. There is a lot of variety within teaching and you can choose to teach children that are just starting out in reception right through to students who are preparing to leave school.

Teachers often find the job quite stressful and for this reason unfortunately many leave the occupations within the first year of starting work. There is always a need for more teachers but with budgets being pushed, lots of schools end up trying to manage with less staff than they really need.  

It may be that you want to get into teaching but are not sure of the exact route you need to take, or need to check if there is any funding available to help you through university. There are a number of companies out there that specialise in this and will help you through the whole process from finding the correct course for you to help you find a job once you have completed your course. 

You may find that it helps to do some work as a teaching assistant or even a voluntary assistant to listen to readers etc. so you can gain some experience in a classroom environment.
