Social?

Social

The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Career Progression header image

Most Education graduates go on to teach in secondary, vocational or community and comprehensive schools. The teaching qualification is recognised internationally, and some graduates choose to travel abroad to find employment in other countries.

Art teachers work in a variety of settings – in second-level schools, in further education, with very young children, with adults, in museums and galleries, in prisons and in many other places where education takes place.

Many education graduates choose to continue their specialist art or design area of work, through further study or employment in those disciplinary areas. In some cases, they might decide to return to teaching at a later stage in their lives, knowing that their professional qualification will still be valid.

Art teachers can pursue a range of higher education awards at graduate level, including Masters awards in various aspects of art or education, such as visual art education, special needs, educational management and other aspects of education. Similarly, Joint Honours Education students may choose to develop their art or design studio practice through MA or MFA work in those disciplines.
