Part-time courses

If you’re interested in teaching maths or physics you can now train as a teacher part-time over two years. To support your training you could earn a salary on a School Direct (salaried) course, or access a bursary or scholarship.

On a part-time course your training will be spread over a longer period – usually two years. This flexible approach means you can fit training to become a qualified teacher around other commitments, offering a more gradual introduction into the profession.

Part-time courses allow you to network with local schools, providing more opportunity for you to secure a teaching job that meets your needs.

If you’re interested in training part-time, we recommend contacting the schools or universities directly before applying. You can find part-time courses on UCAS Teacher Training by selecting ‘part-time with vacancies’ in the third box.
