Real-life success stories: Teachers finding balance and growth with UW
For Danielle Bennett, a primary school teacher, her passion for teaching was rooted in her love for children and their learning journey. But when she started with UW, she found a way to balance this passion with new aspirations. Working part-time with UW while teaching allowed her to maintain that vital connection with her students while exploring a new path.
“I loved being with kids and seeing them progress,” Danielle recalls. “With UW, I found a way to work around my school hours, integrating my teaching skills with this new venture.”
Leveraging teaching skills for a better life
Sarah Riley’s story is a testament to the seamless transferability of teaching skills to the UW business. “As teachers, our mindset is geared towards growth, nurturing, and encouraging others,” Sarah explains. Her move to UW wasn’t just a financial decision, although it significantly improved her financial situation, allowing her to provide for her daughters’ education and more.
Achieving financial and lifestyle flexibility with UW
Rhodri Taylor, with a background in secondary and further education, highlights the financial and lifestyle flexibilities that UW offers. “You can work this business around your life, according to your goals,” he states. Rhodri, who was already at the top of the pay scale in teaching, found financial betterment and more control over his time as a UW Partner.
UK Education Crisis: career transformation catalyst for Teachers
The teaching profession in the UK is facing an unprecedented crisis. A staggering number of educators are experiencing burnout, with the pressures of excessive workloads, insufficient resources, and the constant demand to meet ever-changing educational standards. This relentless environment isn’t just affecting their professional lives; it’s seeping into their personal well-being, leading many to question their future in the sector.
Empowering educators with new paths to success
The stories of Danielle, Sarah, and Rhodri are not just narratives of change; they are powerful testimonies to the possibilities that lie with retraining as a UW Partner. For Teachers and educators contemplating this transition, their experiences underscore the potential for not just a career shift, but a life transformation – where skills, passion, and the desire for freedom converge.
Danielle Bennett, Primary School Teacher – “My best thing about teaching was actually being with the children. I loved being with kids I always have. I just loved seeing them learn, seeing them progress and knowing that you’ve kind of had an impact on their lives. When I first started Utility Warehouse, I was part -time teaching. It worked really well for me because then I was able to work Utility Warehouse around my school hours and around Theo.”
Sarah Riley, Secondary School Teacher – “Joining this business from a background in teaching, there are clearly a lot of transferable skills. Mindset of really good teachers is always a mindset of growth, nurturing and encouraging people to, might I say, step out of the comfort zone. In terms of tangible things, yes, it’s ticked all sorts of boxes financially. I’ve significantly improved my financial situation, definitely. Funding my daughters through private boarding school, help them with things like university, teaching them to drive, buying them a little car. Time freedom, I’ve definitely got that now. I can do whatever I want. But the other thing that’s really important to me is location freedom. My background as a geographer, I love just going to lots of different places, so it’s given me that location freedom. And I now am in a position where I have a sort of millionaire lifestyle in terms of the time and choices. And I can do exactly what I want whenever I want and that is priceless, absolutely priceless.”
Rhodri Taylor, Secondary & Further Education Teacher – “I think the beauty of this business is you can work it around your life to suit your goals. Part -time, full -time, any time, it’s your choice. I would say I’m far better off financially now than I was at teaching. As a teacher I was at the top of the pay scale, which was not bad and obviously I had lots of holidays. But now I’m my own boss.”
