The qualifications you will need to become a communications teacher can vary by region, but generally, you will need to complete a high school education as well as a college degree program, and it is likely that you will need to become certified to teach in your area. You should determine which level you would like to teach so you can research the qualifications necessary to become a communications teacher at that level. It also helps to job shadow a current teacher so you can get an idea of what a typical day of teaching will be like.

It is helpful to also research the communications field so you have an idea of what you will be teaching once you become a communications teacher. It may even be a good idea to get some practical work experience in the communications field before you become a teacher, though this may not be necessary. The minimum qualifications to become a communications teacher usually include earning a high school diploma and a college degree in communications. Some areas will require you to undergo teacher training as well, and several options exist for such training. You can, for example, earn a college degree in secondary or elementary education, or you may take part in individual courses after you have earned a degree in communications. You will need to research the specific requirements in your area.

Once you earn your college degree and become certified to become a communications teacher, you will need to write a resume that highlights your education and experience. Entry-level teaching positions are often available, but the job market will be competitive. In order to gain a competitive edge, you can build up your resume by volunteering, taking part in internships or student teaching training, and attending professional seminars. Any experience you may have in the communications field will make you an even more competitive candidate, and earning a master's degree will give you even more credentials that will help you secure a job.

Once you become a communications teacher, you will need to keep your credentials current by taking part in professional development activities and re-certification processes. Many schools will require that you work toward a master's degree while you teach, though this may not always be a requirement. Other professional development activities may be required, however, such as attending conferences and seminars, or specific training events.

WiseGeek is dedicated to providing accurate and trustworthy information. We carefully select reputable sources and employ a rigorous fact-checking process to maintain the highest standards. To learn more about our commitment to accuracy, read our editorial process.
