alternative careers for teachers
It is not easy to change jobs especially when you are so familiar with one thing and then you have to do another. You need a lot of things like job experience, paper qualifications and more. And it can be a pain to have to do research all over again on what you want to do or what is best for you. Here are some options and why I enjoy them personally.
Tutor- This is the easiest i personally feel as the job is so much similar to teaching. This is really attractive if you have family or work responsibilities, etc. You can work at the time you have stated though you will need to visit students' homes or work on a one on one basis or in smaller groups.
Education Officers- They increase public understanding of organisations such as museums and nature reserves by organising presentations and guided tours. They also liase with schools to arrange visits.
Education Inspectors- They work in teams to carry out school inspections where they observe lessons and interview teachers, pupils, etc and make a detailed report.
Education Administrator- They ensure that schools like colleges and universities run smoothly by carrying out financial, supportive and administrative tasks and so on. Their career might even progress into managerial roles.
Training Coordinator- A coordinator in a human resources department in general plans and conducts general and specialised employee training, educational and development programs. They also help to formulate teaching outlines.
These are just some general jobs that teachers might go into. There are many more out there if we just search for it. There are employers that will hire you because of your education and work experiences. Talking to a career counsellor can help you with the decision making process.
