Why the World Needs More Great Teachers

Heres why the world is in dire need of great teachers…..but these may not be the reasons that you think! 

Teaching is an amazing job that allows people to use their skills to help the next generation. And the world is in need of passionate teachers who want to drive forward positive change. If you still havent applied for university, use our dedicated Clearing website to find the right degree for you.

On our BA (Hons) Education and Learning course, students get to discover what makes a good teacher. You’ll be able to explore current educational policies, as well as the history, sociology, philosophy and psychology of education. Plus, you’ll develop an understanding of current issues affecting education in the UK and overseas.

Here are the reasons why the world needs you, and why you should apply through Clearing for a September 2021 start.

There’s still a teacher shortage in the UK

Brilliant teachers have always been in short supply, and the problem with that is disadvantaged schools are the ones to report greater difficulties in filling teaching posts. This means that those already from underprivileged backgrounds are left even further behind.

While teacher numbers did increase during the pandemic, schools will need to work hard to retain these new employees. And pupil numbers are still expected to rise by as much as 10% in the next few years, so teachers of every kind, and every subject, will always be in demand.

The most in-demand teaching jobs can be found in certain subjects such as maths, science and modern languages. But all specialisms are needed, and across both primary and secondary settings.

 

Inclusivity is needed now
