Why Teaching?

Could teaching be for you?

Teaching is undoubtedly a rewarding profession that allows you to make a difference. A true vocation, a career in teaching allows you to inspire the next generation. As a teacher you will be a lifelong learner, with strong job security, many flexible working options and a huge array of career opportunities and prospects. In teaching, no two days are ever the same and the visible results that you see from pupils are guaranteed to send you home each day with a sense of satisfaction and pride.

We do however like to think that Gloucestershire is a particularly good area in which to train and work within the profession. The majority of training provision is rated as Outstanding by Ofsted and collaboration between schools in the region is strong – resulting in a wide range of professional development opportunities, in a wide range of school contexts.

Quality of life in Gloucestershire is second to none. The Forest of Dean and Cotswolds are areas of outstanding natural beauty, whilst culturally, Gloucester and Tewkesbury are both Cathedral cities and Cheltenham is famous for hosting Literature, Music, Jazz and Science Festivals each year.  Bristol, Birmingham and Cardiff are all within easy reach. Gloucestershire is well served by both road and train links, allowing quick access to the South West, Wales and the Midlands all within 1 hour.
