Teaching is a phenomenal career – it’s gratifying to make a difference in the youth. Yet, it’s also a career that comes with its challenges that many aren’t aware of.

To the everyday person, teaching children seems like a breeze. The misconception comes from the idea that teachers get school holidays and half days – but that’s far from the truth. In addition, while there are challenges in the classroom, outside of school hours, there are as many challenges.

Education is a key pillar of inclusive economic and social development, but as times change, education needs to improve and eradicate the gaps and inequalities within the sector. The future of education is being transformed by technological progress, and the skills used in the workforce are being updated.

Society and the professional world continue to evolve and change with the growth of technology and the beginning of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This, in turn, has had a tremendous impact on the educational sphere, leading to a number of growing trends in the world of education.
