The Teaching Profession – What you Should Know

Posted on February 15, 2017 at 10:32 am

Teaching is a wonderfully rewarding career for many people. It is one of the best feelings in the world to be able to help people and to do it for a living. However, there are some things you should be prepared for when entering the teaching profession. Here are just a few of them to give you an idea:

  • Teachers work long, hard hours. This will usually include weekends as well as evenings. Teachers work far longer hours than their students do!
  • You will be constantly challenged. Teaching isn’t a career where you can settle down and take it easy. Every day will be difficult in its own way.

In order to progress, you will need to learn new skills. Many promotions in the teaching world will also involve management, so you will need to be willing to learn how to help manage and organise your department. You may even need a Masters in Education
