For many people, the education industry is an excellent career path to choose, offering a rare combination of responsibility and reward at all levels.

Most jobs in the education industry require a high level of academic achievement and teaching roles will typically require a university degree, as well as GCSE grades of C or above in English, mathematics and science. Moreover, teaching in a state-maintained school will require applicants to have obtained Qualified Teacher Status, which is usually achieved by studying a teaching degree or gaining a Postgraduate Certificate in Education.
