Teaching, Education and Early Years Careers

Interested in a career in education?


Come along to the Education Employer Fair today at the University of Cumbria Fusehill Street Campus!

11am to 1pm – Learning Gateway

At this event you can meet a variety of employers from the education sector. Find out more about the opportunities locally, nationally and internationally. Contracts include short- and long-term supply as well as permanent, full-time vacancies.

Employers include local and national employers who are actively recruiting for NQTs into their first teaching roles, as well as union reps and overseas teaching opportunities. Employers will be recruiting for short- and long-term supply vacancies as well as permanent, full-time posts.

The fair is focused at final year education, teaching and early years students, however, we also encourage students in other years and on other courses to come along if you are interested in working in education.

Education Careers Resources

We have a great suite of education careers resources available about applications, CVs, job searching, what to expect in your NQT induction year and the pros and cons of supply work. Find all these resources here.


Career options with your Education degree

At 12.30pm today there will be a talk on ‘Alternatives to Teaching’ in LG003. This talk focuses on the other options education graduates have for their career.

Did you know that there are a wide range of options for education graduates? The first that comes to mind for those with QTS is teaching, however, there are also a range of other career options that are available to you.

Check out our post on alternative careers here.


Support is available from your Careers and Employability Service with career planning, CVs and applications, interview skills, practice interviews and more. Contact careers@cumbria.ac.uk with your careers queries.


We hope to see you at the fair later today!
