Career progression and options

If students wish to continue to study a PGCE/postgraduate teaching qualification or consolidate a career in teaching, they must acquire practical experience with children.

Advice: Contact schools directly to ask for work experience or to observe classes or shadow teachers. Volunteering to help out at a local education, sports, community or youth centre is a good way to gain some experience around educational issues.

Note: If students wish to pursue a career in education and teaching, given the diversity of different global education systems, it may be worth considering taking their degree/postgrad training in the country they intend to teach in.
