What does an Education do?

Educators are professionals who provide instruction or information related to a specific subject. This educational activity may take place in a variety of settings including a college or other institution, a community center, or an employer location. They may present lectures, review concepts and factual information, or provide hands-on demonstrations to teach practical skills. They develop lesson plans or program outlines and create presentations, handouts, and other materials. Depending on the setting and subject matter, they may also conduct evaluations or approve certifications.

Educators typically have advanced level knowledge in their particular area of expertise. They should have an extensive professional background in the field. Teaching experience is an advantage. These roles require excellent communication skills and the ability to explain detailed information in an easy-to-understand way.
