You are here: Home > News > Affinity Site Launch


When deciding to train for a certain job, you may be worried about whether that profession is right for you. Afterall, your personality, family life, location and even your health will have a bearing on how suitable a certain role is for you. This is especially the case if you are considering a career in Education, with teachers requiring certain qualities and traits. If you are at the stage where you are thinking about putting yourself through a teacher training course, below are a few telltale signs that it's the right move to make.

You are passionate

Being a great teacher is about passing your passion for certain subjects onto your pupils, employing a real want and need to support their development and teach them new things. With unenthusiastic teachers renowned for not getting the results they need from their class, passion and eagerness is a must for anyone looking to go down the teaching path.

You require a job that is fulfilling

While having a job is about making money, paying your bills and generally keeping things afloat, many of us want our work to do good. If you find yourself in a position where you need to give something back or add value to the world with your work, teaching is certainly worth looking into. Giving the next generation the gift of education is incredibly rewarding; a career that you can take great pride in.  

You like your holidays

A bit of R&R never hurt anyone; right? Well, in the modern world of work, work-life balance can be hard to master. Unless you are a teacher that is! Offering 13 weeks of holidays a year, a role in teaching is certainly advisable if you have a family and like to get away.

You enjoy learning new things

While you will be the one teaching in the classroom, pupils are a fountain of knowledge in themselves, having a unique take on the world that can be refreshing and in many cases; educational.
