Are you thinking about a career in teaching in Primary or Secondary Schools, or in Colleges of Further Education? Canterbury Christchurch University is holding a ‘Postgraduate Routes into Teaching’ Open Day on Saturday 6th June on their Canterbury Campus, where students and graduates can find out more about a career in education, and discuss their plans and questions with course staff. More information is available at http://www.canterbury.ac.uk/study-here/open-days/open-days-and-events.aspx.
Alternatively, if you would prefer to start teaching in the classroom straight away, Teach First offers the chance to learn through doing on their Leadership Development Programme for talented graduates. Teach First work primarily in areas of deprivation or need, and Teach First graduates will be supported in working alongside pupils from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, to tackle educational inequality.
