Consider attending an event

Information events are a great chance to meet local schools and universities who provide teacher training. You’ll not only have the opportunity to receive personalised advice and tips, but this is also the time to ask the providers any questions about their individual courses, their requirements and availability.

Arrange some school experience

Spending time in schools shadowing teachers will help you to make an informed decision about teaching as a career. It’s an opportunity to make a great impression, as many schools recruit potential applicants from school experience days. We can help you gain school experience via our School Experience Programme.
