Teaching is one of the oldest professions in the history of mankind and learning is something we humans do all the time – from the moment we are born to the day we die, both consciously and subconsciously, in the classroom, the workplace, the home and just about everywhere else imaginable.

If somebody has a certain skill which is valuable to others, they can teach it. Whether an academic subject or a practical tool, the transferral of skills is an absolutely vital aspect of human existence, without which we would not have evolved into the species we are today.

Nowadays, formal education is both a requirement and a fundamental right of the vast majority of children around the globe; that’s a lot of children, and somebody needs to teach them.

Many teachers will tell you that the work is both stimulating and extremely rewarding. Teachers are in constant demand both in the UK and abroad and the perks of the job are some of the best available, including long academic holidays and, in the UK, public sector pensions.
