Any of you lads Teachers?

I'm tempted by the immediate money I can get by selling myself to the profession for one or two years, without really comitting myself to the suicide inducing career for life.

I'm looking to relocate to London and take up training.
Any advice?

I'm not - but everybody I know who does it hates it and wants out.

Literally everybody. The only people I know who still can handle it are the ones who've moved to the Middle East and can put up with it for the tax free cash.

Same here, they bloody hate it and all the stories I've heard from them has put me off the idea of doing it just for a couple of years too.

I'd rather sell double glazing door-to-door, and I say that as someone who has sold double glazing door-to-door.

My mum was a teacher and has expressly forbidden me from ever becoming a teacher. Unless it's at a private school.

So what is it teachers hate so much about being teachers? I'm sure kids are utter bastards but what about all those sweet, sweet holidays?

I only know one lad who became a teacher, but I'm not friends with him any more. He was always the petty tyrant who thought he was always right, tried to manipulate and control those in our peer group, so naturally it makes perfect sense he'd go on to a job where he gets to do just that to a bunch of kids who can't escape.

80% of them are dossers and inadequates who can't really cope with the real world. Like OP, they had no real desire to teach, they just fell into it because they had a middling degree and no real plan or ambition for what they want to do in life. Some of them do figure it out and fuck off after a couple of years, but some of them get stuck and become increasingly frustrated and embittered.

The remaining 20% are genuinely passionate about teaching, but they're stuck in a totally dysfunctional environment with a bunch of people who don't really give a shit.

I find the career teacher a very weird idea. You go through primary secondary college and university and back to school. It seems like an insidious loop where at no point are you exposed to the 'outside world'. And I mean that in the least snobbish way. But if you have no understanding of what the world is like for people outside the institution how could you possibly prepare people for it?


I probably have a personal bias of hating piss poor teaching and a concern of it fucking peoples futures up. My education at school was shit. The secondary school I was at is being disbanded. And as a personal act of vengeance on my application to colleges one of the teachers wrote the single line statement 'not suitable for A-levels'. I dropped out of IT before GCSE at said school and now work as a developer something I discovered by accident I had a passion and talent for and had to self teach long after formal education. So please OP don't become a teacher unless you actually give a shit about improving Children's chances in life.

OP here.

To fill out my profile a little more, I'm an overqualified bar manager, having worked up from the bar staff job I got at Uni. While I appreciate teaching may be shit, from my perspective I already care for children; just intoxicated ones who somehow still retain the franchise.
I hate my job, replacing it with a higher paying job I may hate equally really isn't much of a problem for me.

Thanks for the advice lads, having talked it over IRL I've decided to still get this application in, but keeping an eye on other opportunities.

I've put up with worse.

Good luck lad - hope it works out for you and you should pursue what makes you tick.

That said, is there nothing else that tickles your fancy?
