What can I do with an Education and Teacher Training degree?

Education can be one of the most rewarding sectors anyone can work in. Not only will you shape the minds of the future, but you’ll no doubt find a moment in your career where you can step back and realise all the good you have done in your local community. 

Those who chose a career in the Education sector are usually people who are interested in giving something back. Fortunately, for those who want to do some good, there are plenty of opportunities to do so as there is a huge demand for skilled Education and Teacher Training graduates. 

There are plenty of areas to specialise in, but here are some of the most viable careers in education:

  • Community Education Office
  • Foreign Language Teacher in English (teaching abroad)
  • Further Education Teacher
  • Learning Mentor
  • Primary School Teacher
  • Secondary School Teacher
  • Special Educational Needs Teacher
  • Teaching Assistant

An Education degree is one of the most diverse, as it gives you many transferrable skills which involve working with young people. You can go on further to specialise in roles like these:

  • Careers Advisor
  • Museum Education Officer
  • Private Tutor
  • Youth Worker

Participating in volunteer opportunities with young people is a great way to boost your employability profile. There are many ways you can get involved in your local community; a simple online search should suffice and highlight plenty of opportunities.

During their studies, University of Bolton students have embraced opportunities that have helped develop their skills. From getting involved in University Mental Health Awareness Day to heading out to local museums to discover more about the history of education in the country.

Graduating from an Education or Teacher Training course can set you up to have an incredibly rewarding career. If that sounds like something that is of interest to you, please get in touch with our admissions team here.
