While the pandemic is still very much in our lives, countries all over the world are starting to ease the stay-at-home orders in a bid to return our lives to normal.
Although we still have to take plenty of measures to keep us safe, there is light appearing at the end of the tunnel.
2020 has been a year of challenges and changes for us all.
Often the world has come together to support one country hit by a disaster, but this year we were all united by COVID-19 and the changes we had to make to protect our families.
Across the globe, many parents have lost their jobs or been forced to work from home.
We have juggled our daily routines with homeschooling our children.
With quarantine orders being lifted and schools slowly taking children back into classrooms, it could be time for some parents to reconsider their life after lockdown.
Life After Lockdown
Homeschooling has been loved by many, and it’s bought out a passion and joy in them that they haven’t experienced in their regular jobs.
If you are going to miss your time as the educational force behind your child, then maybe it’s time to retrain and look at teaching as a full-time career.
To become a teacher, there are various qualifications you will need to have so you may need to sit exams before you can even consider taking the training courses.
There are many ways you can do this, including finding an online tutor to help you through your maths and English exams.
Once you have the necessary qualifications, you need to do a training course.
This can be a lengthy process depending on the type of teacher you want to become.
From early years all the way through to late teens, you will need to have different skills at all levels.
Highly Rewarding Career
Teaching is a highly rewarding job which will give you a feeling that you are giving something to the world.
You will be responsible for a lot more than just educating a child on a subject.
Teachers also have a duty of care over pupils.
You will become their inspiration, their protector and support unit away from home.
It can help to have extra training in counselling or other support courses to help you to give the best experience to any children that will be in your care.
There are multiple advice sites for those who would like to learn more about a life in education, so do your research and get as much information as you can before you make any big leaps into changing your career.
You will also need to consider your family and personal circumstances.
There is financial support offered in some parts of the world for anyone looking to retrain and come into the teaching profession, so even if you have to leave your job or go back to college, you might find you qualify for a bursary or other assistance to help you through the journey.
If you have found a new passion through the difficulties of this year, then why not use 2020 as a springboard to a new life.
Change is easy if you work hard and love what you are working towards.
