Education Alternatives updated and available to download

04 December 2019

The AGCAS Education Alternatives publication, produced in collaboration with GTI Media, has been updated and is now available to download from the TARGETJobs website.

The publication provides information about education-related careers other than teaching in mainstream schools. It is a particularly useful resource for:

  • students and recent graduates drawn towards an educational role but not sure that mainstream teaching is for them
  • trainee and qualified teachers seeking to move to a different role in education.

It is divided into two main sections:

  • Section A: Teaching in alternative settings - roles which involve teaching, but not in mainstream education. Most but not all of these roles require teaching qualifications.
  • Section B: Alternative roles in education - roles within the broader education sector, and beyond. Most of these roles do not require a teaching qualification, but in many cases it could be beneficial.


Education Alternatives is given an in-depth review every two years by the AGCAS Teaching and Related Professions Task Group and we would like to thank them for all their work on researching and updating this publication.

If you have any questions about the publication, please contact us.
