About Education and Teaching

How would you like a career where you can inspire the next generation and make a difference to the development of a young person's life?

Where you could use your knowledge and skills to ensure that all students have an equal chance and the opportunity to learn, flourish and succeed.

Teaching can be one of the most challenging and rewarding careers that you could choose, it is a profession with good prospects and job security.

Once qualified there are lots of opportunities to climb the career ladder as long as you are ambitious, motivated and passionate about the subject you are teaching.
