Nursery teacher

My other suggested career would be a nursery teacher

As an early years teacher, your working hours will vary depending on your employee. Some nurseries will be open outside normal school hours, from around 7am to 7pm, so you might be expected to work long days or do shifts.

As a nursery school teacher, you will work, on average 37 hours a week, however this is not a normal nine till five. A lot of the time, the school day will start around 8.30am and finish around 4pm.

In nursery will be expected to spend time out of your usual hours planning and preparing activities and lessons, and attending parents’ evenings and training sessions

.To gain your first job as a nursery teacher, you’ll need to gain early years teacher status by completing an early years initial teacher training course . In order to gain a place on this course however, you’ll usually need to have a degree in childcare or teaching. Your pathway into the industry usually also depends on your experience working with children.

Typical tasks and duties for a Nursery Teacher may include:

Preparing engaging learning activities

Creating and collecting learning resources (e.g. visual aids)

Working with assistants and nursery nurses to coordinate plans
