Switching from IT sector to Teaching
Planning to change your job to teaching field? Wondering which option is better: school or college? Here, on this page get advice about the pre requisites for switching to the teaching field.
I am working as software engineer for past 15 years and currently employed with an MNC in Pune.
I have done B.E. in Computer Sc.& Engg. from BIT Mesra, Ranchi and Executive MBA from SIBM, Pune.
Now, I wish to switch to teaching field for certain obvious reasons which I don't see in IT sector. I don't have any teaching experience in schools or colleges. I need guidance on following two options:-
1) What can I do to enter into teaching field for classes upto 10th or 12th ? Do I need to get B.Ed. degree first?
2) What can I do to enter into teaching field in Technical subjects in Colleges? Do I need to get M. Tech. degree first?
3) Is there any age limit that I should be aware of? I am 37 years now.
In either case, if I have to study B.Ed. or M.Tech., then do I have any option to study that keeping my current job in which I get weekends (Sat/Sun) free. I am asking for both schools and colleges because I do not know which would turn out better for me, though my inclination is more towards schools.
