Accelerated courses

If you’re interested in qualifying as a maths or physics teacher within two terms, you can now do just that on an accelerated teacher training course. To support your training, you could earn a salary on a School Direct (salaried) course, or access a bursary or scholarship.

Accelerated courses offer a full-time intensive training option for highly experienced and skilled individuals capable of achieving qualified teacher status over a shorter period than the standard one year. Completing an accelerated course will typically take two terms, meaning you could secure a teaching job sooner than on other programmes.

If you’re interested in training on an accelerated course, we recommend contacting the schools directly before applying. You can find these courses on UCAS Teacher Training by selecting ‘mathematics (abridged)’ or ‘physics (abridged)’ in the subject box.

The schools offering accelerated courses are:

Not sure if this is the route for you?

You could also take the standard approach to training on a one-year school-led or university-led programme. Alternatively, you could qualify as a teacher in two years on a part-time course.

If you need further support, you can register with us for tailored advice, or feel free call us on Freephone 0800 389 2500 between 8am and 8pm.
