A career with a difference

If you want a career with a difference, become a teacher.

People choose to teach for a load of different reasons. Some want a great work-life balance. Some want to give something back to their communities. Others want a job that provides opportunities for personal development, and some want a job with competitive pay, conditions and rewards. Whatever your motivation, or stage in life, teaching can tick all these boxes and more.  

You’ll find all the information you need, including the qualifications required and where to study, in this section.
