Rewards of teaching
As most teachers will tell you, there’s no such thing as a ‘typical’ day at work. That’s because no two days are the same – you’re unlikely ever to be bored by a lack of variety. It’s also a career that offers great benefits, opportunities for you to use a wide range of skills and inspire students in the subject you love.
Make a difference and inspire the next generation
You may remember a truly brilliant teacher from school who made a real difference to your life. As a teacher you can use your knowledge and passion for your subject to help children unlock capabilities and talents that they didn’t even know they had. You’ll develop a wide range of transferable skills for yourself in the process, too.
In addition to planning and teaching a range of engaging lessons, you can indulge in your hobbies and interests as part of your work by getting involved in after-school clubs, trips or sport.
A career for the future
Once qualified, there are many chances for good teachers to climb the career ladder and find opportunities for employment. The Department for Education has made it easier to find a teaching role via the Teaching Vacancies service. You can search by location, subject, job title and salary - view the range of teaching roles currently available across England.
A competitive salary and great benefits
You will also earn a competitive salary and have access to a wealth of other benefits – from a generous pension to up to 13 weeks of holiday allowance. So you can look forward to a career that is both personally and financially rewarding.
Financial support while you train
There is plenty of financial support available during your teacher training – depending on the subject you want to teach. You could also access tuition fee and maintenance loans to help support you. Or you could earn a salary while you train on School Direct (salaried) course.
