Teaching is a job where I can keep learning, use my degree and make an impact – The Institute of Physics blog — iopblog.org

I graduated with Astrophysics degree at The University of Manchester two years ago. Since then I completed a year-long internship before co-founding a design and education start-up with a colleague, through which I started a series of STEM after-school clubs at primary schools in East London among other projects. I have always wanted a job that would change people’s lives for the better and make the world a better place. Teaching is one such job, but I did not immediately clock onto that. It was only after having some other experiences following graduation that I realised I also wanted to have a job that would put me in contact with people (I am a social person who thrives when I can have lots of ideas bouncing around me), that would give me the opportunity to keep learning and would let me apply the physics and mathematics knowledge I have acquired through my degree onto something useful. Besides this, the lack of specialist physics teachers in the subject and the support the government and the IOP are currently giving to physics graduates entering the profession helped me make up my mind and take the step forward.
