Will there be more post-primary teaching jobs in the future?

    I think teaching is my calling. I know it's something that I'm good at and I love doing it. I have a lot of tutoring experience but that's all. I am going into my final year in college and I'm trying to figure out what to do.

    I know that I can apply to do teacher training in the UK via UCAS and I'd probably walk straight into a job. It seems there are no shortage of jobs there. But, with what happened with Brexit, I don't know if that route would be feasible. Also, while I may become qualified and work in the UK, I may never be able to return to Ireland and work as a teacher here. I was looking at and most of the jobs teaching business, accounting, economics (which would be my area) are part-time, substitution, or covering for maternity leave.

    Being able to work in Ireland as a teacher would be my dream. Now, I may have to look at alternative graduate programmes. I loved learning about tax so I'm thinking of applying to the Chartered Tax Advisor programme in Dublin.

    Sorry for the long-winded question. I would love some advice. Thank you :):)
