A Norfolk maths teacher has featured in a national campaign to encourage more university graduates to consider a career in the classroom.
Daniel Meston, a teacher from Thorpe St Andrew High School and Sixth Form in Norwich, has backed the Get Into Teaching campaign.
It comes after more than a quarter (28%) of university students and recent graduates surveyed in Norwich said that knowing they are making a difference was among their top career aspirations
Separate data shows there was a major increase in teacher training applications this year.
Reflecting on his seven years of teaching, Mr Meston said: “As a teacher, now more than ever, you know you’re playing your part in making a real difference in the world. It gives me a huge sense of pride, achievement and fulfilment in my own life.

“Like other careers, teaching is hard work but it’s a profession that builds and nurtures key skills like leadership and confidence and the emotional payback is far greater than I ever anticipated.”
