I currently work in the manufacturing industry for a specialist oil tools company. I have held this position since passing my modern apprenticeship. I have also passed my HNC in manufacturing engineering. I wish to change career, but don't know which avenue to pursue. I have highly eclectic tastes, and wouldn't rule out any career as long as i find it challenging. I am an outgoing person, who can relate well with any age group. I have considered teaching, but don't know where to start. I would appreciate any advice on how to get into teaching, and any experiences from teachers of any age group. career recommendations and why they are fulfilling would be much appreciated.

You need a degree for teaching, an HND may be ok but HNC's are not really valued that much anymore. You could always perhaps do a degree part time while you are still doing your current job you can complete some part time degrees in 4 years or less. Technicaly you would also need A levels or an HND to get into university but I am guessing your over 21 so a lot of universities will take you on as a mature student.

Once you have got your degree you will then need to complete a PGCE which is a teaching qualification. I think you are looking at about 5 years worth of education before you can become a teacher to be honest.

Don't let this put you off though.
