Career Changers

Today’s Headteachers believe that it is important for schools to have a well balanced workforce, with a combination of both career changers and graduates who choose teaching as their first career choice upon leaving University

Career changers bring a wealth of tools and skills into the classroom, including valuable life experiences and the ability to demonstrate how their subject relates to the world around them.
If you have thought in the past that either teaching is not for you, or that you do not have the right qualification to get into teaching, then think again, as you may be pleasantly surprised!
