Teaching is considered to be one of the noblest professions in the world. It not only shapes one's career but also teaches them good values. Teachers develop the aptitude of students and teach them basic skills like literacy and communication techniques. By helping students, teachers determine their role in society, thereby shaping society indirectly.

There are various types of teachers, many of whom are trained to teach at different levels in educational establishments, others are special education teachers who teach students suffering from any kind of learning, mental, emotional, or physical disability. Specialist teachers teach subjects such as English, Science, Mathematics, and History among others at various levels. In order to become a teacher, one must possess a passion for teaching coupled with a range of other skills and requirements. A teaching course provides the skills and knowledge necessary to become a successful and innovative professional and it combines both theory and practice. Teaching degrees are offered in full-time, part-time, online, and even distance learning modes.
