Training to teach German
German is one of the core modern languages taught in our schools. That’s why great German teachers are always in demand. As a German language trainee teacher, you could benefit from a tax-free £26,000 bursary or apply for a £28,000 scholarship from the British Council, to support your training year. There’s even support in place before you apply - when you register with us, you could receive free tailored advice from a teaching professional throughout the application process.
If you’re a non-UK EU national, read our helpful summary on preparing for teaching - you could also receive a tax-free bursary or scholarship to train as a teacher.
As a brilliant German teacher, you can put your skills to great use by inspiring a new generation to discover the joys of learning a language. Your teacher training will help you build up the knowledge to create imaginative lessons that make German engaging and enjoyable for your pupils.
Once qualified, your career will be full of opportunities to make a difference – teaching not only important linguistic skills, but also educating young people about other cultures. This can range from incorporating elements of life in German-speaking countries into your teaching and classrooms, to participating in school trips and exchanges.
In addition to the varied days and job satisfaction, you’ll benefit from a competitive starting salary of at least £23,720, or £29,664 in inner London and a diverse range of opportunities for rapid career progression.
