A teaching degree is a credential that graduates people who are trained in a specific field.
The process of teaching a degree can take a number of forms, but typically involves a series of interviews and certification tests.
You will receive a certificate from your college or university, which you will need to present to your employer or the government, depending on your country of residence.
It is also important to note that the teaching profession is not immune to the whims of governments.
As a recent article from the Associated Press detailed, the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) reports that the number of teaching degrees issued in 2017 rose by 4,000.
But what about the actual work that you do?
The most common types of teaching are the following: Teaching assistants or tutors (TAs) or lecturers or teaching assistants (TATs).
The TAs are part of a team of tutors, and they are paid $1.75 an hour.
The most popular type of TAs is tutoring, with tutoring salaries reaching as high as $18,000 per year.
Teaching assistants in other disciplines are paid the same as TAs in most states, with some states even offering teaching assistants with degrees in education and nursing.
Teaching assistants are also eligible to teach under some conditions, including in private homes and at daycare centers, according to the NCES.
Teaching assistant programs in public schools are also available in most areas.
You can find more detailed information on teaching degrees and other teaching related credential types in the official NCES website.
