If we have learnt anything from Matilda’s Miss Honey or Mr Keating from Dead Poets Society, it’s that teachers can have a big impact on their students’ lives. Whether you are heading to university or tired of your desk job, you can train to become a teacher and pursue a more fulfilling and active career.
Before sending off your UCAS application, though, make sure this is the right career for you. Shadow classes in a variety of schools or volunteer as a classroom assistant.
