Course summary

Course overview

We believe that every child deserves to have an education that enables them to reach their full potential. By becoming a teacher, you can nurture and inspire children to acquire knowledge and develop essential skills that form the blueprint for the rest of their lives. A career in teaching gives you the opportunity to play a pivotal role to help break cycles of poverty and low academic achievement.

It’s no secret that teaching will be challenging at times, but any career can be. With teaching, the difficult times are far outweighed by the rewards of influencing and shaping the lives of young people, instilling self-worth, bringing them out of their shell and helping them to develop lifelong values. The work is full of life, vibrancy and colour and no two days will be the same.
