gamer.tv Posted July 22, 2018 Share Posted July 22, 2018 I'm hoping to successfully apply to be a teacher this October. It's hard as although I hold a degree (the minimum standard to apply) it's 'Ordinary' which does not exactly say much about me academically (typically, on completion of sufficient credits in the UK, your scores are totaled and an overall grade is then given - 1st, 2:1, 2:2, 3rd and then at the bottom of the barrel 'Ordinary'). But I feel it's a career path that I can get genuine enjoyment out of and more importantly, with experience would have the skillset to be in private education (namely where the money is). It's the only thing I've wanted as a working adult, to feel proud of my job. So far I've been in full time work for 4 years and have never really felt satisfied with what I was doing. It made enough to live in a house, buy things etc, but it wasn't something that made me happy. It's why I left a management role (where I would suggest I'd develop, jump up two tiers and then move on within the next 3 years or so) to get experience working in a school. But how about you, are you happy not loving your job for the paycheck, or do you prefer to potentially be paid less, for feeling like you are doing more?
