Part-time courses

Your training will be spread over a longer period, usually over 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. To support your training you could access a bursary or scholarship, or earn a salary

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 the Department for Education’s search tool: Find Postgraduate Teacher Training. To find the part-time courses near you, search by either post code, town or city, across England or by school, university or other training provider. Choose the phase and/or subject and change the 'Study Type' to ‘part-time’ (18-24 months). 

Not sure this route is for you?

You could also take the standard approach to training on a one-year teacher training course. Alternatively, you could qualify as a teacher in two terms on an accelerated course.
