What are the benefits of being a secondary school teacher?

At this stage of development, children are a little more engaged and ready to take on more mature topics. This can be a very rewarding point of their school career to be involved in. We’ve listed a few other benefits below:


  • Continue your study in a chosen subject - if you are teaching biology because of your own passion for the subject, this is a wonderful opportunity to continue your learning, and share that enjoyment with others.

  • If you have a family, the holiday schedule for the school year is perfect for you and enables you to sync up with your own children for more quality time. If you don’t have any children, you’re guaranteed to enjoy the freedom of these long breaks.

  • You’ll never be bored with a new class starting each academic year. Although teaching the same curriculum may seem repetitive, each new year will give you an opportunity to hone teaching techniques and get creative with lessons plans with a brand new class.

  • Being a role model and inspiration - helping students choose GSCE and A Level subjects, going on trips away from home and parents for the first time, or even just getting them engaged in lessons. If you’re able to positively influence these developments you could be changing lives for the better.


Should you become a secondary school teacher?

To become a secondary school teacher you are required to have a degree, usually in the relevant subject, and a recognised teaching qualification. There are a number of teaching qualifications that are acceptable but this may depend on the specific type of role or school you are applying for. You will also need to pass a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.


If you have the following skills and personality traits, you may be a natural born secondary school teacher:


  • An excellent communicator - being able to communicate with clarity is a valuable skill, especially if you are able to come up with stimulating, creative methods of communication which children of this age respond to well.

  • The ability to demonstrate - this is an important skill. When each action and decision of a process is shown and explained, the learner has a fuller understanding of what is in front of them.

  • Subject matter knowledge - this may seem like an obvious point, but an in depth understanding of the subject you are teaching along with a passion for it encourage students to respond better and engage more in the classroom.

  • A good sense of humour and ability to build relationships - Children at this age are beginning to really understand that respect is a mutual aspect of the classroom, if you are able to connect with your students on their level and ensure that the mood of the classroom is positive, you have the potential to control and inspire your class.
