Initial Teacher Training
Make a difference and inspire the next generation
Most of us remember a truly inspirational teacher from school who made a real difference to our lives. As a teacher you can use your knowledge and passion for your subject to help children unlock capabilities and talents that they didn’t even know they had. You’ll develop a wide range of transferable skills for yourself in the process, too.
In addition to planning and teaching a range of engaging lessons, you can indulge in your hobbies and interests as part of your work by getting involved in after-school clubs, trips or sport.
A career for the future
As well as job satisfaction, teaching also offers great employment prospects and job security:
Nine out of ten newly qualified teachers were employed within six months of completing training
Nearly 70% of newly qualified teachers are still in the profession after five years
Once you qualify, there are lots of chances for good teachers to climb the career ladder.
A competitive salary and great benefits
You will also earn a competitive salary and have access to a wealth of other benefits – from a generous pension to up to 13 weeks of holiday allowance. So you can look forward to a career that is both personally and financially rewarding.
Financial support while you train
There is plenty of financial support available during your teacher training – depending on the subject you want to teach. You could also access tuition fee and maintenance loans to help support you. Or you could earn a salary while you train on School Direct (salaried) course.
