Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

The stats above mainly cover teaching degrees for training and qualifying in primary school education. These tend to be three or four-year courses – check with course tutors about how long you will need to study to get your Qualified Teacher Status. Most graduates go into teaching roles, usually primary school teaching, so these courses have good employment rates and starting salaries. But, be aware that primary school jobs are in short supply in some parts of the country, so if you hope to teach primary school children, don't expect to automatically be able to do so in your local area - you may still have to follow the jobs. That said, teaching roles are there to be found country-wide.

When you look at employment stats, bear in mind that a lot of students are already working in education when they take this type of course and are studying to help their career development. This means they already have jobs when they start their course, and a lot of graduates continue to study, whilst working, when they complete their courses. If your course is focused on early years education, a lot of these graduates go into nursery work or classroom or education assistant jobs; these jobs are not classed as 'graduate level' in the stats, but many graduates who enter these roles say that a degree was necessary.
