Teaching and Education

Roles in teaching

Teaching can be a varied and rewarding career path. Depending on your degree subject, and whether you want to teach at primary, secondary or higher education, there is a range of roles available.

TEFL teaching

TEFL teachers can find work teaching English in the UK and abroad with a recognised TEFL qualification.

Graduate teaching schemes also exist in countries such as Japan, China and Hong Kong, and the British Council recruits language assistants to work in countries across the world.

Teachers from overseas

If you are already a trained teacher from outside the UK and you want to work as a teacher in the UK, you can receive support to help you relocate to teaching in England
