Have you always wanted to become a teacher? Have you reached a point in life where your career no longer meets your needs? Do you want a job that provides a real sense of satisfaction? Teach East can help you to realise your ambitions to become a teacher.

You may remember a truly brilliant teacher from school who made a real difference to your life. As a teacher, you can use your knowledge and passion to help children unlock capabilities and talents that they didn’t even know they had. You’ll develop a wide range of transferable skills for yourself in the process, too. In addition to planning and teaching a range of engaging lessons, you can indulge in your hobbies and interests as part of your work by getting involved in after-school clubs, trips or sporting activities.

Your previous experience can be a valuable asset in preparing you for life in a school. From organising your schedule to working as part of a team, you may already possess many transferable skills which can support you in your life as a teacher.

So how do you know if teaching is right for you? We would encourage you to gain some experience in a school setting. This will give you a taste of what your life as a teacher could be like.  If you would like support or advice about how to gain school experience get in touch. 


Or perhaps you have already gained experience in a school and want more information on how to apply?
