Where will teaching take you? New UK and Ireland guides

Posted on Career planning, England, Graduate opportunities, Jobs, internships and work experience, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Scotland, Teaching and education, Wales

With both life and study experience OU graduates have potential to make great teachers. It’s no surprise then that 18% of OU students go into jobs and training in Education (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey 2016/17). We have five new guides that will take you through the process from first decision to applying for teacher training in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

If you have a disability, you’ll find links to resources and organisations who can provide extra support.

Our guides also cover teaching and lecturing in Further and Higher Education, tutoring with the OU, Teaching as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and Special educational needs and disability (SEND) education.
