The best thing about being a teacher is…

If you're considering a career in teaching, it can be useful to hear from qualified teachers about what it's like to be one.

Teaching is a rewarding career with great benefits, including a competitive salary and opportunities for career progression. We asked several Portsmouth teachers what the best thing about the profession is and what you can expect from it. 

  • An opportunity to inspire young people

As a teacher, you have an opportunity to inspire a classroom full of curious minds and shape someone's future.

  • Having a positive influence and making a difference

As a teacher, you are a role model and have a positive influence on those you teach.

  • Specialising in a subject area

If there's a subject you're passionate about, such as mathematics, why not consider specialising in that area? You'll be able to share your passion for the subject with your students.

  • Taking part in extra-curricular activities

Helping out with extra-curricular activities is a chance to inspire others with your hobbies or interests alongside your teaching responsibilities.

  •  Every day is different so you'll never be bored!
