More York residents expected to move into teaching

Changing to a career in teaching will remain a popular option for York residents in 2016, a government agency is claiming.

The New Year tradition of pledging to make big life changes shows no signs of slowing, according to figures released today by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL).

Switching to a more fulfilling career in teaching looks set to remain a popular choice for people targeting a new challenge.

January was one of the busiest months in 2015 for registrations of interest in teaching in the region.

More than 41 per cent of those logged with NCTL came from people looking to change career to teaching.

In 2014/15, registrations from people in Yorkshire and Humberside who were considering changing career into teaching topped 3,390.

That was 40 per cent of the total registrations of interest for the year and the highest number in three years.

Tessa Mason, NCTL teaching and leadership advisor (TLA) for teachers in York said: "The start of the new year is a natural time for people to think about whether a change could make them happier or more fulfilled.

"One way of shaking off the January blues is to start a new rewarding career this year by taking your skills and experience into the classroom.

“Some of our best teachers entered the profession after pursuing careers in other fields, bringing a wealth of experience to help inspire the next generation.

"That is why we are running a series of events so people can find out more about the options and support available.”
