Teachers can achieve anything!

A list of successful teachers in history

At Exclusive Education we spend our working days placing remarkable individuals into teaching jobs across the North West. Some in long term teaching roles, others in supply teaching jobs, as well as Teaching Assistants, Support Staff, Cover Supervisors and SEN assistants.

Some of our candidates wouldn’t simply consider themselves as teachers. Maybe for some supply teaching is a way of earning more money in a flexible working environment. Perhaps some enjoy the job satisfaction of shaping young minds.

The point is this – Teachers are remarkably talented people who have a multitude of skills, hobbies and talents, as this list shows (in no particular order):

Candice Brown


Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you will have noticed that The Great British Bake Off has been shown on the BBC and was won by Candice Brown, a PE Teacher from London. Candice was one of the shows all-time best performers and surely a career away from teaching will now beckon for her.


Sir Isaac Newton


Mathematician, Astronomer, One of the most renowned physicists of all times, First person to describe gravity and laws of motion, inventor of first practical reflecting telescope… do we need to say any more?

Wes Craven
