There is no better feeling in the world than knowing you have helped someone learn something that has gone on to shape who they are. In most professions you never get to experience that feeling, but in teaching you get to feel it every single day.
There are also lots of career opportunities within teaching. Subject and phase leadership, pastoral care and whole school senior leadership are just some of the progression routes for highly skilled, motivated and driven teachers to pursue.
The chance to inspire young people to be the very best that they can be and see them grow as young adults is extremely rewarding.
