1. The need for trainers isn’t going away.
According to Oxford University, 47% of jobs will disappear in the next 25 years due to the advancement of technology; and while other jobs can be replaced, we can safely assume that there will always be a need for trainers. Most people still have greater success in their pursuit of learning with face to face interactions, and that’s not changing any time soon.
2. Every day will be different from the last.
If you are the kind of person who struggles with a monotonous job that requires you to repeat the same actions every day, then teaching could be a fantastic option for you. Every student is on their own journey that presents its own challenges, and you need to be able to think on your toes; constantly adapting to new personalities and obstacles. Because of this, every day will be different from the last, as you will often determine what the workday looks like with your specific group of students.
3. The opportunity for travel.
International pathway programs are growing in number all over, and the Australian accreditations for training are among the most respected in the world. This makes Training a highly transferable skill across many industries and countries. Take it as your opportunity to work and explore at the same time.
4. Job satisfaction.
It’s no secret a lot of people don’t gain any sense of satisfaction from their career, but when you become a trainer you also become a role model. Students will look to you for advice and guidance, and as you develop your methods and skills, so do your students. It feels great being able to give knowledge and experience to those who can appreciate it, and take it with them to eventually do the same to others. Gotta pay it forward!
