My ideal career is to be a primary school teacher, because I love working with kids and its not all about just being strict and doing this and that it can be fun and enjoyable also
What job family is your ideal career linked with? My ideal career is linked into the Social job family because i love communicating with young children from all ages and abilities.

You will need good communication and interpersonal abilities; good organisational and time-management skills; energy, enthusiasm, patience, dedication, resilience and self-discipline; initiative, leadership and supervisory skills and team-working abilities; imagination, creativity and also a sense of humour, to be able to be good at this job.

A day in the life of a teacher can vary greatly depending on the subject and grade level in which they teach. From Primary school to Secondary school and special education to statistics, one theme runs consistently throughout every great teacher’s career: their job does not end with the school day. Although standing in front of the classroom is a huge part of a teacher’s responsibilities, they extend far beyond that into the lives of their students, their students’ families and their community.
The typical work hours for a primary school teacher are just about 60 hours a week, which also is more than 8 hours a day including marking work and teaching during school hour.
I would work at my old primary school because i loved it so much and didn't want to leave or if not then another primary school close to my home.
A Primary School Teacher earns an average salary of £24,585 per year.
