about this template.

If you’re someone that wants to make a genuine difference to young people’s lives then teaching could be an ideal career choice. Teaching is challenging but incredibly rewarding and with potential career progression, six-week holidays are far from the only benefit in the industry.

There are a variety of ways to get into teaching including undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses, so make sure you do your research and understand the advantages and disadvantages of each one. Teaching is also a surprisingly varied industry ranging from primary school teachers who will need a broad knowledge, to secondary school teachers that require in-depth understanding of specific subjects. If you have a flair for linguistics, teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) is a great option.

If you’re entering the industry from university there are great career opportunities with the potential for you to work your way up to head teacher. Alternatively if you already work in the industry and are applying for a new position make sure you highlight your prior achievements such as positive Ofsted reports and classes exceeding expected grade targets - this will look particularly favourable to recruiters.

Whether you’re a new graduate or have been working in the industry for several years, teaching remains a satisfying and fun career with new and diverse challenges everyday. Make sure you download our Teaching CV Template to help you with your next job application.
