According to iNews, two thirds of the millennial workforce say they are likely to make a major career change in the near future.
Prematurely jaded young professionals who want a job “rooted in purpose” are being urged to enter the classroom by the Department for Education’s Get into Teaching campaign.

Nick Gibb, the school standards minister, said: “There’s never been a better time to become a teacher – this year we have announced a 2.75 per cent pay rise for teachers, alongside outlining plans for starting salaries to rise to £30,000 by 2022-23.
