Training to teach secondary subjects

As a teacher, you can make your skills and knowledge really count, and inspire young minds with your enthusiasm and passion in teaching your preferred subject. You can use this section to find out more about the different subjects you can teach.

If you’re interested in teaching a priority subject, you could be supported by our free Premier Plus adviser service throughout your journey into teaching. Read stories from recent trainees who successfully applied for teacher training with the help of our experienced teaching professionals

 

Priority subjects

These subjects are particular priorities for schools. As a result, you’ll find there is lots of support available to help you get into the classroom, from generous tax-free bursaries or scholarships to extra support during the application process. 

If you don’t have a relevant degree or need to refresh your knowledge you could complete a fully funded subject knowledge enhancement course (SKE) before starting your training. 

Other subjects

These subjects are very popular and teacher training places tend to fill up quickly. From October, you can search on UCAS Teacher Training for training places in all secondary subjects.
