What is our “step into teaching” programme?
So, you’ve graduated from university and you’re thinking about whether teaching could be a career for you. Fantastic! Now… how do you make that happen?
There are so many options when it comes to teacher training that it can be quite confusing choosing which path to take. It is also very difficult to get accepted onto a PGCE or teacher training programme with many programmes requiring prior experience working in a school, and you may not want to commit to a teaching career when you have never experienced life as a teacher. This is where our ‘step into teaching programme’ comes in. Our experienced education consultants will place you in a paid teaching assistant position that is perfectly suited to your skill set, in a school that suits your personality. You will get to experience the life of a teacher, learn how to be a great educator from experienced teaching professionals and truly impact the lives of pupils, whilst in a fully supportive environment. It is fantastic work experience both for your own personal development as well as for your CV, and you can earn whilst you learn!
There are a range of roles available to you, often linked to your degree subject. As we are a national company, you can also choose where in the UK you would like to be located. You will get to experience teaching first hand and ‘test the water’ before you dedicate yourself to a PGCE or other teacher training course. A large proportion of our graduates go on to train directly at their host school. You will be gaining invaluable work experience whilst you are inspiring your pupils and helping us to tackle the huge issue that is educational inequality.
Our friendly and experienced consultants will be with you every step of the way, helping you to make the best decisions for your career before, during and after your placement. Get in touch today to find out how you can take your first step into teaching.
