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 a salary on School Direct (salaried)

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 field.

Training providers offering secondary part-time courses are:

School-led training 

University-led training 

You can find primary part-time courses on UCAS Teacher Training by selecting ‘Primary (c3-11/12 years)’ in the first field, ‘part-time with vacancies’ in the third field and then select your region.

Not sure this route is 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 terms on an accelerated course.
