Well teachers, this is what Cavanagh thinks about teaching as a career.  It is being stated by an accountant.  I wonder what his team mates think about this given how many are either teachers, trainee teachers or going into schools as full time paid coaches.

Teaching is a handy number shocker. Hardly news.

I take it your wife isnt reading that post?  ;D

Our club is full of teachers, cant remember a team that didnt have at least 2/3 teachers on each senior team, I'd imagine most clubs are like that but they dont do it because they play GAA....

A teacher can earn a hell of a lot more money if they left and got another job (non teaching)

But its the perks of summer hols, ability to be off when the kids are off, no real child care required once they are in primary school, a better pension than most and if you're half decent at your job its a job for life..... promotions within if you like a heavey workload and free ski trips  ;) Yes private sector jobs pay better, but a lot more uncertainity...
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

He says it is a worrying trend. I don't know why he'd be worried about it. If they decided to not work and deal drugs to have flexible hours then he'd have something to worry about.

I think its the lack of talent going into the private sector rather than what he thinks wasting their time and skills on teaching!

I've yet to meet a teacher that is a loss to the private sector  ;D  I hope my missus isn't a secret lurker on this board. Maybe she's The Stallion.

Accountancy, scientific, recruitment, IT, carpentry etc... Depends on degree and level of experience.

I would have agreed with Sean 10 years ago.

Maybe the stats prove he's correct but today I see more women, less GAA male county players.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

What's the percentage of teachers that did the three years teacher training like st Mary's to ones that did a degree and year teacher training?

That's because they are all becoming primary school teachers, that all St Mary's and Stranmillis are turning out these days.  The PGCE courses require 2:1 and first class degrees which more men than women are achieving so the profession is now about 70% female and rising.  The number of men in St Mary's is quite small but enough GAA players to win the Sigerson.
