What type of work does an education consultant do? What does the career path into education consulting typically look like?
I have background in teaching and worked a private equity role this past summer. I'd love to find a role that combines these two interests and was thinking that education consulting could be a good fit. Any personal experiences or tips would be great to hear!

Typically a deep expertise in 2-4 areas of education (eg, curriculum design, educational technology, personalized learning, experiential learning) is helpful to market yourself as an educational consultant.
Getting at the points above, I think the career path involves hands on experience in a school(s), at the district level, at a youth focused nonprofit, department of education or similar entity(ies).
Being a corporate trainer is a great way to combine business with your love of educating others. After you gain experience as a corporate trainer, you would be qualified to transition to an educational consultant role. Good luck!
You can research online through your state government what educational objectives are planned out for 5-10 years.
There are usually educational boards or councils or administration in your region or city, you may check with your local library.
