As a former teacher, you can make a positive impact by using the additional knowledge and experience gained from your time away from the profession. Many schools recognise this and can offer support to help you get back into the classroom.
You can also benefit from a competitive salary and good career prospects. On average, a full-time qualified classroom teacher earns £34,600 a year, with excellent opportunities for progression. In fact, 41% of teachers are in leadership roles, and a great teacher can earn up to £65,000. Find out more about pay and conditions.
