This download is a custom career. This means that you will need the NRaas Careers mod installed in order to use the download in your game.
When it comes to school, our teacher sims want to make a decision between teaching the children or the teens. So I bring the Teaching Career, where they can make that choice.

This is another one of my older careers but has been updated and improved within the last several months. This does not override the Education career from Ambitions. In fact, this career is Base Game compatible.

For this career to show up, you will need the Nraas Careers Mod.
This career was made with Patch 1.69 and is in English and supports translations in Swedish, Russian, French and Dutch. If you're interested in translating this career, there are instructions at the bottom of the page.

The career is based at the School and splits between Primary and Secondary. There are five levels before the split and each branch has five levels.
There are no uniforms for this career. You can edit career outfits with Patch 1.31 and above, so I highly suggest using this feature to give your Sims a uniform of your own choosing.
There are 5 Opportunities available.
Your Sim may receive a bonus on Snowflake Day if Seasons is installed.
There is no boss for level 10 of the career.
There is one custom tone, Hold Tutor Sessions, which builds the Logic skill.

Join Text ~ Becoming a teacher can fill you with a sense of accomplishment. After all, would you be where you are now without the help of your teachers? Your entire life will be devoted to helping children and teenagers gain a full education. It?s a job to be proud of.

The Levels

1. Playground Monitor ~ Keeping the peace among the students is a job in itself but you can do it. Just keep a beady eye out for the bullies in the playground and help out the victims. As long as you report the incidents to your superiors, you should get along just fine.
25/hour
8.00am ~ 3.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

2. Teachers Assistant ~ The teachers need you to help in the classroom. You will aid the children who need that bit of extra help, make sure everyone understood the instructions, and run errands for the teachers. It sometimes feels like a pretty thankless job, but a necessary one if you want that classroom experience.
30/hour
8.00am ~ 3.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

3. Higher Level Teachers Assistant ~ As an HLTA you'll help out the teacher even more as you have that extra experience. This will prove invaluable to you in your later studies as a teacher. Your job doesn't really feel any different to that of a mere Teachers Assistant, but the pay is a significant increase due to your experience.
50/hour
8.00am ~ 3.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

4. Cover Supervisor ~ Sometimes teachers get sick and when they do the school needs a cover supervisor to fill in and take the class. Of course it's not always that simple. The teachers often leave no work prepared for their classes and you're not yet qualified to teach the students. So some degree of improvisation is required in this job and an ability to remain calm and collected in even the most difficult classroom situations.
75/hour
8.00am ~ 3.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

5. Trainee Teacher ~ You've made it this far but this is where you really get to teach and keep order in the classroom. You're still only a trainee, so you have yet to earn the respect of the students. But while it's a long way off from becoming a respected teacher, it's definitely a start. Soon, you'll have to make serious decisions about how you're going to shape your career.
100/hour
8.00am ~ 3.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

Elementary Branch
6. Graduate Primary Teacher ~ Putting your all round knowledge of subjects is the key to holding the admittedly short attention-spans of the elementary students. You've begun to earn their respect as a newly qualified teacher and the children are beginning to like you. Keep your teaching standards high and you'll be climbing that educational ladder to Principal in no time.
125/hour
8.00am ~ 3.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

7. Infants Teacher ~ From ABC to 123, you can now play a part in helping young minds to grasp the basics. It's a difficult task, since the attention-spans of five and six-year-olds is not the best, but once you do grasp their attention, you'll feel a sense of accomplishment when your young students learn to count to ten and recite the alphabet. What a wonderful job you have!
170/hour
8.00am ~ 3.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

8. Juniors Teacher ~ The kids are bigger and older but work gets harder. You'll need to keep the lessons interesting to keep their attention! This is where a little more order in the classroom is required as the students move up towards the oldest in the school and begin to get a little too big for their boots. But keep your cool and know when to revoke classroom privileges.
240/hour
8.00am ~ 3.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

9. Deputy Headteacher ~ Having survived life in the classroom, you can now deal with some paperwork, have meetings with parents and teach occasionally. You've been put in charge of the discipline in within the school and having to deal with disgruntled parents and students isn't quite the delight you were expecting, but it's part of the job and you'll have to really have a golden tongue to keep your sanity.
325/hour
8.00am ~ 3.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

10. Headteacher ~ More paperwork and meetings with parents await you now you've reached the top. You'll do less teaching now as you are involved in the business side of running a school. Appointments of staff is placed in your hands and you carry the responsibility of the conduct of the school as a whole. Such responsibility! But you've climbed your way to the top and your career has been a long, yet rewarding one. So relax on the weekends and bask in the glow of your accomplishments.
450/hour
8.00am ~ 3.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

Secondary Branch
6. Graduate Secondary Teacher ~ Everything you've learned will be put into practise now as you are a qualified teacher. You've chosen your special subject and you get a real sense of fulfilment when your students begin to grasp the subject and perform well in their tests and exams.
150/hour
8.00am ~ 2.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

7. Head of Year ~ As Head of your year group, you have to deal with any problems concerning students in your Year as well as your teaching duties. It means missing the odd lunch break and sometimes staying at the school very late, but you'll manage it; you?re the Head of Year! It's your job!
185/hour
8.00am ~ 2.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

8. Head of Languages ~ You still teach but your boss has recommended you as Head of the Foreign Languages department. You're in charge of all things concerning the languages taught in the school. You'll organise foreign residential trips for the students and will be in charge of arranging the school exchange programmes.
265/hour
8.00am ~ 2.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

9. Deputy Headteacher ~ There will be more paperwork and less teaching now as you meet with parents, attend meetings and find that there are never enough hours in the day. Discipline is your domain and you have to maintain the behavioural standards within the school environment.
350/hour
8.00am ~ 2.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

10. Headteacher ~ You are now involved more in the business side of running the school. You've reached the top and all your hard work has paid off. You still have to organise the staffing and confer with your Deputy Head as to the discipline, but your work is coming together and your retirement will look promising.
475/hour
8.00am ~ 2.00pm
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I really like this career idea and not only am I downloading it to use in my own game, I also consider translating it to Swedish if you need a translator.
If I do, is it just the texts between the <STR> that I need to change?

A Swedish translation would be lovely, thank you! Yes, only the text between the <STR> tags need to be translated. Thank you very much!

I downloaded the mods but my sim is not going to their job. Every time I click for them to go to their job at the time to go, the action disappears. Please help.

Hi there! Okay, check your sim's career outfit. This is a common issue when there are no uniforms for the career so it's advisable to set one up for your sim. Simply edit their career outfit in Stylist mode or CAS (I usually use Master Controller for this). Alternatively, I believe you can use the dressers. Set up a career outfit for them and then they should go off to work as normal Let me know how you get on!
