When you’re considering credible career options, going into the education industry is always a very solid choice. However, when you’re not keen on becoming a school teacher at the elementary, middle, or high school levels, you can instantly look to write it off. But don’t. Because education can offer you more than a classroom position. Whether you’re looking to make a career change or progress in a different industry, or you’re just starting out, considering education would be a wise choice. The industry is forever in demand, and job opportunities are always on the rise. So, if you think this sector could be the one for you, here are five education based careers to consider that aren’t just about the classroom.

School Counsellor

Firstly, you could consider becoming a school counsellor. It may sound like an odd choice at first, but you’ll get to combine some really great skills. Not only are you required to be a licensed and certified psychologist, which gives you a great foundation, but you can also help young people that are in need. This could be your next step from a child psychologist or even prepare you for a career in that field later on in life.

Education Administrator

Next, you might like to think about the options available as an education administrator. Now, it’s important to note that to become an education administrator, you will need teaching experience. So this can be a great step to consider for a teacher that is looking to progress (or if you don’t mind some classroom stuff to start you off). You’ll have a lot of security in this role, and the earnings are often a lot higher too.

Industry Educator

However, if you don’t want to work in mainstream education, you could also look into the education options that are available in your current line of work. Because every industry will have some form of training in place and a lot of the time, it’s industry professionals that do the educating. Whether you need formal education like a master of nursing education, or specialist training, now’s the time to find out. Then, you could become a trainer in your specialism and teach in a very hands on way.

Training Specialist

However, you may also want to look into the ways that you could become a training specialist in general. You may not have experience in a certain industry, but you could be great at sharing your insight. So, it would be worth looking into training qualifications that are great for areas like HR or evening Training & Development itself.

Professor

Then, of course, you could also look into becoming a professor. This may be something that you’d be interested in doing due to the dual aspect of the job. Although professors teach, they educate at the postsecondary level on a subject that they’re passionate about, and with a syllabus that they’re likely to have created themselves. Plus, a huge portion of the job is about research, meaning you won’t be spending all of your time teaching.
