A role integral to the development of society, teachers and educators help young people to broaden their horizons, build a variety of skills, and face the challenges of growing up in an ever-changing world. In most countries around the world, becoming a teacher requires several years of formal education, as well as training in an educational setting.
Whilst some education and teaching courses will be more focused on the practical application, they will all cover the theoretical aspects of what is involved in being a teacher or educator. The content of your degree will depend on what age group you wish to work with, the subject(s) you want to teach, and whether you are studying for an undergraduate or postgraduate degree.
