Interesting career option.


Very few graduates these days opt for teaching as a career.

To pursue a teaching career, you need to clear B.Ed.
The eligibility criteria for B.Ed, is being a graduate, with minimum 50%.
So you still have a year to go, since you are in the 2nd year.

Though you have already selected Teaching as a career option, it would be good to get hands on experience in the teaching world.
So during your vacation or during the evening, you could enroll yourself as an intern teacher or a helper teacher.
Most of the international schools call in for helper or assistant teachers, who would be the support to the main teacher. For being an assistant teacher, the only requirement is English speaking and being creative.

Another point here is that International Schools also come up with their own " teacher training Programs", for which minimum qualification is a graduate. They train the teachers according to the needs of the school. These teachers once they finish the course, they are then employed by the school itself.
But then you are restricted to only the International Schools only, so if you wish to expand, best would be to undergo a B.Ed training, so you could find employment in any schools whether Private or Public or International.
School Teacher
For B.Ed, please note that you firstly need to select the subject you would like to specialise as a teacher. Apart from this, the course involves a lot of creativity projects, which can be done in groups but are mostly individual.
A theme would be given whereby you would have to be thinking differently and implement it and show them the results.

Though you may choose just one subject as your specialization, but Art and craft and extra curricular activities are a part of the teachers role. So do polish these abilities of yours too.

Also just as a word of caution, I am sure you are aware of it, that these days schools are not employing teachers permanently, they are on contract basis which may or may not be renewed.

Hope this answers your query.

Wish you all the very best...........
