Working in teaching you see you helping everyone achieve their full potential, no matter the age or subject. As a teacher, you’ll be responsible for a whole class or as an assistant you will likely dedicate your attention towards specific students. It’s an incredibly rewarding career choice, but it’s is not without its difficulties.
Teachers have to be patient and creative in their teaching to make sure that all different learning styles are accommodated for. This is applicable whether you work in special education, adult colleges, universities or state schools.
To become a teacher you have to undergo teacher training, in which you will cover two key stages. The key stages are:
Early years foundation stage (EYFS) – 0-5 year olds; nursery and reception
Key Stage 1 – Ages 5-7; Years 1-2
Key Stage 2 – Ages 7-11; Years 3, 4, 5 and 6
Key Stage 3 – Ages 14-16; Years 10 and 11
After you have completed your teacher training you will have qualified teacher status (QTS), which means that you can teach any age in a school. Typically, teachers will stay within the age ranges that they trained in although you do have the option to move around.
In primary schools (Key Stage 1 and 2) you will be required to teach a range of subjects, whereas for secondary school (Key Stage 3) you usually specialise in one or two subjects.
Alternatively, if you prefer teaching adults, a position as a lecturer in a university or adult college may be for you.
Most teachers will also rely upon a teaching assistant in the classroom, either for general assistance or to provide extra help for those who may need it. For this, you do not require a degree but will still be responsible for helping students achieve their full potential.
