What happens at a
Train to Teach event?

A popular train to teach event in a hall with stalls and banners

Train to Teach events are designed to give you an insight into what it’s like to be a teacher, as well as the practical information you need to get onto a teacher training course.

Events are run by the Department for Education and are impartial. We do invite local training providers along to give you an idea of what they offer, but our goal is to answer your questions and give you the confidence to take your next step.

To attend, you need to register. Spaces are limited, so the sooner you sign up, the better.

What to expect on the day:

Events last a few hours. In that time, you’ll have a chance to:

  • put your questions to expert advisers, teachers and training providers
  • chat with current teachers and find out what a career in teaching is really like
  • listen to a step-by-step guide on how to get into teaching, the application process and funding your training
