A Career in the Teaching Service
A teacher’s maximum career-span is normally expected to start as a new primary school teacher, rising to the position of Principal in a secondary school. However, there are many opportunities for a teacher’s career path to extend beyond the school system – such as to TSC, MBSSE or other public administration institutions. Teachers with an academic aptitude move on to positions as lecturers at Teacher Training Colleges. Alternatively, a teacher may advance within the wider education sector, seeking positions with international organisations or working as consultants in education. Teachers may also seek positions within parastatal and private academies, and training institutes. See figure below to view potential teacher career paths.
