Are you considering a career in teaching but not sure if it’s for you?

Teaching is one of the most rewarding careers you can have.  When you work with young people, you have the amazing ability and responsibility to provide guidance and mentorship to an entirely new generation. You get to inspire others and mould the future of individuals.  Teaching makes a difference, with visible results.

But teaching can be demanding and is not for everyone.  If you are considering a career as a teacher but still unsure if it’s for you, we’re here to help.

What makes a great teacher?

What children want from teachers

In this webinar, Phil Page, SCITT Hub Lead for Discovery Trust (one of our partner schools), shares what children want from their teachers and talks about a teacher’s ‘why’.
