Work-from-home jobs are the new go-to solutions for companies that want to keep their talented employees and also accommodate their needs.

Education jobs also now come into the category of jobs that can be done from home.

After all, teachers are humans too, and the education sector is opening up to varied job roles suitable for women going back to work after a break.

You heard right, education jobs are no longer restricted to just teaching jobs. 

There are a whole range of jobs, such as career counselling and teacher training, that can be done online that help reach more learners across the country and the globe.


A study conducted by the National Institute of Education Planning and Administration (NIEPA), from the Ministry of Human Resource Development, states that teachers spend 81% of their working hours at school in non-teaching activities.


Women who work from home can choose their working hours and get to decide how to make the best use of their time for their job.

Wouldn’t you want to utilise your time in teaching-related activities and channel your efforts to the job at hand?

Well then, a work-from-home job with targeted digital solutions is the right fit for you.

1. Teaching

Online training in a variety of subjects

Salary: Rs 30k-40k/month 

Online teaching jobs are not as complicated as you might think they are.

However, with the emergence of new technology in video conferencing, online teachers can now interact with their students and even conduct classes for groups.

2. Instructional Designer

5. Teacher Training

Train teachers in best practices and methodology

Salary: Rs 15k-20k/month

Teaching may be a noble profession, but what is more important is ensuring that the teachers of the future are equipped to handle the challenges of the classroom.

If you are well-versed in a foreign language and have a knack for teaching, then this job role is perfect for you.
