Teach First - Taster day for career changers (West Midlands)

28 November 2019 at 08:00 - 17:30 in Birmingham at the Teach First

Event information:

At Teach First, we seek, develop and support teachers and leaders who are determined to make a difference where it's needed the most. Our programmes help people with experience change career and teach in schools serving the poorest communities.

But we know that teaching, and a whole new career, might feel daunting. Our taster day is your opportunity to try out teaching in a supported environment.

Based in one of our partner schools for two days, you'll:

  • spend time in class, seeing teachers in action
  • teach a short activity to a class of pupils, with the support of our experts
  • be guided throughout the two days by a fully qualified teacher
  • work with a small group of others considering a change of career
  • meet current teachers who changed career with Teach First
  • learn how we can support you to make the change too

It's for professionals considering a new career direction who are eligible to teach science or maths on our training programme.

Register your interest today and we'll get in touch to answer your questions and tell you how to apply.
