Teachers are among the most important members of the workforce. They impart vital knowledge and prepare students to be good citizens and workers. Teachers are often the first role models young people encounter outside of their families, and many students cite teachers as having a significant, lasting positive impact on their lives. According to a 2018 survey by the Varkey Foundation, teachers are considered one of the top 10 most respected professions in the world.
With a growing emphasis on academic achievement, test scores and preparation for postgraduate study, it is an exciting time for a career in educational consulting. Professionals in this field not only play an important role in assisting students with their educational planning, but in some instances they work directly with schools and universities to train faculty and improve their curricula and educational practices.
