Take your engineering skills into the classroom
As a graduate of engineering, your skills in logical thinking, problem-solving and strong numeracy will provide a natural transition to teaching subjects such as maths, physics, chemistry or computing – subjects that are in demand in schools. You’ll also provide pupils the chance to conquer a subject that’s a gateway to other careers and employment. Many engineers successfully retrain as teachers every year and there's lots of support available throughout the application process.
What to expect
As a trainee teacher, you’ll learn the skills to plan and deliver engaging lessons that inspire the best results from your pupils. You’ll be assisted by a team of mentors and tutors, helping you become a confident and inspiring teacher.
Once you qualify, you’ll start on a salary of at least £24,373, or £30,480 in inner London. As your career progresses, so will your salary – teachers in leadership roles can earn on average £58,881, with many earning significantly more.
