Training to teach English

The job satisfaction of teaching English is hard to beat. You’ll put your knowledge to brilliant use by inspiring pupils of all abilities to achieve the best attainable levels of literacy. You could receive a tax-free £15,000 bursary to support you while train to teach English.

English is a vital subject at the core of the curriculum, one that can be integral to young people’s long-term prospects and success. That’s why schools need the very best professionals and graduates to bring their skills as English teachers to the classroom. As part of the curriculum, you get to use your knowledge and creativity to:

  • provide your pupils with the ability to express themselves to the best standards, both verbally and in writing
  • help your class to become critical thinkers, working together to explore and dissect modern and classic literature
  • ensure students meet the mandatory minimum requirement at GCSE that further education and professions demand

Your training will have a strong focus on helping your classes to become effective communicators. You’ll learn the teaching methods and strategies that will help them hone their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills to stand them in good stead for the future.

And once you’ve qualified, you’ll benefit from a competitive starting salary of at least £22,917, or £28,660 in inner London. You'll also have lots of opportunities for rapid career progression and pay increases.
