5 Reasons to Become a Teacher

Shaping young peoples’ lives and giving them the tools to learn and explore the world is just one of the reasons people become a teacher, but there are several factors to consider if you’re thinking about a career in teaching!


  1. You’ll always be needed!

As the population continues to grow, more and more teachers will be needed to ensure future generations have the skills and knowledge to thrive in the world. Even with advancements in technology causing job loss in other fields, there is no true replacement for a real teacher. Teaching offers strong job security for this reason.


  1. Being a positive role model

Some young people, for whatever reason, may lack a positive role model in their lives that they can look up to and learn from. Becoming a teacher can allow you to become that person, positively affecting their life and helping them grow.


  1. A job to be passionate about

It can be difficult to find a job that you’re truly passionate about, but most teachers fully believe in, and love, what they do. Children pick up on this and your enthusiasm can be instilled in them, helping them better their learning.


  1. Inspiring the next generation

Few careers offer quite as much job satisfaction as one in teaching. Being able to positively affect a child’s life in such a meaningful way cannot be underestimated and is something you can go home with pride about. Even people who are far into their careers often have fond memories of teachers from many years ago, demonstrating the impact that a positive teaching experience can have on an individual. Other than parents, teachers have possibly the largest influence on a child.


  1. Clear career progression

From being a teacher, you can choose to progress in several ways. Whether you want to become a head of department, a headteacher or deputy head in your existing school, move into the private tutoring sector or even travel the world teaching, these are all pathways available to you following your teacher training and workplace experience.


These are just five of the many wonderful reasons why you might want to progress into a career in teaching. If you’d like more information, or to enquire about our teacher training courses, please get in touch with us today.

What people say

I was asked during my interview why I chose this training programme instead of any other. I thought it would give me the best training of any that I’d found and I stand by that even more now. The support and guidance I got was exemplary.


This course really is fantastic. I feel personally that I could not have been given a better start to my teaching career.


Trainees have stated to me that all sessions without exception have been valuable to them mainly because they felt the nature and the content of the sessions had been well thought out and prepared in detail making them highly relevant to their classroom experiences

One of the many strengths the RCTTP course offers is the high standard of support to trainees and I am especially thankful for that and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this course
