Updated Education Alternatives now available

Education Alternatives, jointly produced with our partners GTI, has been updated and is now available to download as a PDF from the TARGETjobs website.

Updated by the AGCAS Teaching and Related Professions Task Group, Education Alternatives provides information about education-related careers other than teaching in mainstream schools.

It is a particularly useful resource for:

• students and recent graduates drawn towards an educational role but not sure that mainstream teaching is for them
• trainee and qualified teachers seeking to move to a different role in education.

It’s divided into two main sections:

Section A: Teaching in alternative settings - roles which involve teaching, but not in mainstream education. Most but not all of these roles require teaching qualifications.

Section B: Alternative roles in education - roles within the broader education sector, and beyond. Most of these roles do not require a teaching qualification, but in many cases it could be beneficial.


This publication has been updated as part of our joint commitment with GTI Media to produce relevant and informative resources for the benefit of students, graduates, careers professionals and the wider HE community.
