Teachers considering a career change

Making positive changes happen

Making smart career decisions

Changing career is a big decision for anyone, but for Teachers it can feel an even bigger leap. Being a teacher can feel like you’re defined by your job, so if you’re not a Teacher, who are you? For many in the situation of considering a change, the joy of being in the classroom has gone. The hours feel never ending, the demands have increased and they outweigh the rewards. People tell you to look at your transferable skills but they either seem to fit nothing in the outside world, or everything. You feel stuck.

The good news is that there are always more options than you think and some of them will be a better fit for you and easier to achieve than you make think. You may also decide that you want to stay within teaching or education, but you will make other changes that have a positive impact on your working life.
