Deciding on a career path can seem like a tremendous task to begin with. After studying multiple subjects for years, you finally have an idea about what you enjoy learning and potentially a career to pursue. The next step is to look for a degree in the industry you want to head into.
In this blog, we’ll be looking at careers in the education sector and what the future can look like for someone wanting to join the industry. Getting into teaching is an admirable choice, helping others improve their lives. Many teachers specialise in a subject or an age group, but all of them do more than teach knowledge, they help children grow into what the future needs. By the end of this blog, you’ll know more about this spectacular industry and the wonderful people in it.
People choose to get into teaching for several reasons, some want to give back to their community, some wish to pass on their knowledge and wisdom, and some enjoy helping others to better themselves. Whatever reason you have, know that teaching is one of the most respected job roles in society.
There are many different teaching roles, and you can choose a variety of education levels and subjects. Many people decide to become a primary school teacher as it gives them more chance to mould students into good citizens and, they don’t have to deal with teenage drama.
Primary school teachers have the chance to teach multiple subjects daily, from English and Math’s to Technology and Computing. The challenges that a primary school teacher faces are keeping the children interested in long enough so having a bubbly and upbeat personality with fun ideas is essential.
For decades incredible teachers are helping improve lives every day up and down the country, inspiring the next generation. Someone who was inspired to become a teacher was none other than front man of rock group KISS, Gene Simmons. Before performing in front of thousands of fans, he was a 6th-grade teacher in New York’s Spanish Harlem.
If you’ve been inspired to get into teaching, then starting your Undergraduate degree at the University of Bolton this September is a great idea. For more information about the courses, click here.
