Considering a teaching career?

Teachers can be the difference in helping students reach their full potential. Their dedication, hard work and commitment can have an important impact on children and young people of all ages.

To celebrate teachers and the valuable work they do, the department has released a series of videos which share the personal, lived experiences of teachers. The videos present a snapshot of their lives, what influenced them to take up this rewarding profession and the moments that shaped them.
