Aspiring teachers encouraged to attend London’s Train to Teach roadshow
People in London are being encouraged to find out about the fantastic rewards and opportunities a career in teaching offers by attending the Train to Teach roadshow when it visits the Congress Centre, 28 Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3LS on Saturday 3 February 2018.
The event - part of the annual Get Into Teaching campaign - is aimed at encouraging more graduates with the passion and potential to teach.
It offers a chance for aspiring teachers to get all their questions about a career in teaching answered in one place. It will highlight the competitive starting salaries and excellent employment prospects as well as the financial support available - you could get a £26,000 tax-free bursary to train as a teacher.
Attendees will be able to meet representatives from schools and universities that provide teacher training, gain insights into how to make a strong application, and receive one-to-one advice from current teachers and teaching experts.
Applications for teacher training starting in September 2018 are now open and popular courses fill up fast.
Roger Pope, spokesperson for the Get Into Teaching campaign and Chair of the National College for Teaching and Leadership, said:
“Good teachers are in demand and the career provides excellent employment prospects with the opportunity to progress quickly. Alongside the generous bursaries and scholarships on offer, we provide a comprehensive programme of support to help people become teachers.
“The Train to Teach roadshow in London isn’t only for graduates – every year, we see people from other sectors switching to teaching, bringing a wealth of experience to help inspire the next generation.”
The free Train to Teach event is being held at Congress Centre, 28 Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3LS on Saturday 3 February from 10am to 4pm.
A range of online workshops offering support are also being held.
