Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Sydow is looking for teachers: Answers for Taion's quiz - Game Guide

Sydow is looking for teachers: accept teaching positions

In order to complete the side mission "Sydow is looking for teachers," you must teach six teams of recruits. However, no objective markers are shown on the map, so you may not know exactly what to do.

You can accept the teaching assignments by examining the information board in Gamma Colony. She is at the gathering point and is symbolized on the map with a magnifying glass. There you will find information about the teaching assignments. You then have to discuss the information at a rest point in order to get the corresponding side missions.

"Sydow Wants Teachers" is a longer quest line. You cannot complete all of the subtasks at once, but you will receive the six side missions one by one. They are all not really difficult. The side quest that literally raises the most question marks is Education: General Knowledge.
