Lianne, an explore teaching adviser
Teaching is…
  • generation-shaping
  • innovative
  • life-changing

Find your future career

Finding out which career is right for you is not always easy. How do you know what something is like if you've never done it before?

Our explore teaching advisers can help you discover whether the classroom is where you belong. Your dedicated adviser will give you support and guidance, and can answer all your questions about what teaching is really like.

All our advisers have years of teaching experience and can help you gain an insight into the world of teaching. You can talk to your own adviser as little or as much as you'd like in the way that suits you best.

What kind of teacher could you be?

Every teacher brings something different to the classroom.

What could you bring?

I promise the level of satisfaction is like nothing you’ll get in another job. I wake up every morning and want to get into school.
