As another academic year is drawing to a close, lots of people will be thinking about next steps and potential career choices. Graduates will be considering what their future holds and which roles might fit with their skill set. Parents with children moving up the educational ladder might be thinking about starting a new career. Whatever your motivation for looking forward, if you have passion, curiosity and would like to make a difference, it is highly likely that teaching as a career could be right for you!
What are the benefits of Teaching as a Career?
A career in education, particularly for a teacher is one of the most rewarding you can have. Teachers inspire, support and encourage students from all walks of life to be inquisitive, inclusive and innovative. Their guidance and influence are often felt for years afterward and can have a profound impact on who they become. Even certain famous faces have credited past teachers for changing their lives and helping them become who they are, including Oprah Winfrey, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Maya Angelou, John Legend and Bill Gates. For young graduates who may not be completed certain of their career path, there are some unique attributes that come with teaching. Here are just some of the things to consider:
It’s an adventure. The truth is you never know where your future could take you when you become a teacher. Particularly with an internationally recognised certification like our Diploma in Global Teaching Practice, you could end up travelling the world and working with children and students in a multitude of different places or even learning a new language!
You can build lifelong connections. As well as potentially being a long-term influence on your students, teaching is a chance to explore new cultures and make new friends in diverse environments that will be with you forever. This is wonderful for your own personal development, but it will also make you a better teacher for your students as you grow and learn as an educator.
It is a reputable career choice. Teaching is one of the oldest and most respected careers in the world. Given how the demand for teachers is only growing, it is a great choice for those looking for stability and security.
