Chemistry's importance can be seen all around us, every day. But with a shortage of good chemistry teachers in the UK, there is a serious demand for talented individuals to transfer their skills to science education. Possessing charisma, empathy and scientific knowledge, you will be required to communicate chemistry's key elements to pupils of all abilities and backgrounds.
