How a Degree in Education Can Help You in Your Future Career

There’s no doubt about it; education helps shape lives. We can all name at least one teacher who made a real difference in our education and inspired us.

If you want to play a pivotal role in nurturing children and young people, a degree in education is a perfect career choice.

When many people think of education degrees, they think of teaching. However, there are lots of other career opportunities you can take advantage of too.

So, what career opportunities are there in the education sector? Let’s take a look…

The career opportunities available with an education degree

As well as primary and secondary school teaching, there are a lot of other different roles you can move into with an education degree:

• Education officer - Works for the local council, helping oversee local learning experiences and ensuring all children get the education they need

• Family liaison - Works with families to get them the right resources, empowering parents and care givers

• Educational psychologist - Works with children and young people with emotional and social issues or learning disabilities to support them in getting the right educational resources.

An education degree will teach you lots of valuable skills you can apply to your future career. Some of the skills you learn include conflict management, communication, critical thinking and reporting.
