Working in teaching with a degree (or similar)
As a teacher, lecturer or tutor you will use your skills to develop a positive learning environment for your students.
A good sense of humour helps and patience is essential. You will teach a particular age group: ages 5 to 11 in primary schools, 11 to 19 in secondary schools, 14 to 19 and/or adults in further education colleges, sixth form colleges and universities.
There are many different types of school, college, training and university teaching jobs, so you will need to think carefully about what role and age group would suit you.
