In India, the field of teaching is considered a noble profession. A good number of young men and women and even middle-aged people, especially housewives, aspire to become a teacher. You can teach at various levels, from pre-primary, primary, middle school to secondary levels. Depending upon the level you teach you will need the necessary qualification. With a basic teacher training course you may at the most teach up to primary level. However, you may add on to your qualification by undertaking higher level courses, like bachelor programs in education.
