The things they don’t teach you at uni when studying teaching


Things you don't learn at university title

Teacher life can’t really be truly understood until you set foot in the classroom and start to give it a go yourself.

It is then that early career teachers discover that their teaching degree really didn’t teach them everything they needed to know about the day-to-day running of the classroom.

From classroom management, to how to organise digital files, to how to get your class from A to B quickly and quietly...

The first few years in the classroom is a BIG learning curve.


Those tricks of the trade that look like second nature to veteran teachers have been slowly curated and learned over time. Think of it as a toolkit that is continually added to year after year.

One of our passions here at Rainbow ow Sky Creations is helping beginning teachers. We want you to feel prepared, confident and ready to take on all the challenges teaching may throw your way. So, we created a TikTok series called:

“Things that weren’t covered in your teaching degree”
