Sharing knowledge. Fostering skills. Creating engagement. Educators and trainers all over the globe inspire billions of people every day. From kindergarten to university, to life long learning. The possibilities for careers in education and training are endless, whether you want to teach in high school until your retirement, or be a freelance workshop facilitator.

This month’s Your Perspective is all about education and training. With a degree in the humanities you can easily become a teacher, trainer or some other kind of educator. Our panel of alumni will give you a taste of what’s possible, how to get there, and what skills and preparation you would need for a career in this broad field. We will host a diverse panel to show you a wide range of opportunities.
