Teaching is a popular career option for many students, as it is both a challenging and rewarding field. But the number of ways you can become a teacher can be confusing – what is the difference between a PGCE and Schools Direct? What do charities or private teacher training companies offer? Can you apply through UCAS, or directly?
To answer these questions and more, a talk on Routes into Teaching will be held as part of Employability Festival on Thursday 3rd November (11-12 in KLT2).
Speakers from the Department for Education, Canterbury Christ Church University’s PGCE programme, and Kent-Teach, an organisation which help Kent schools recruit new teachers, will be coming to campus to tell you about the different ways you can become a teacher, and help you think about what you can do while you are a student to prepare for that first step in your career.
The Routes into Teaching session will be immediately followed by the Teaching Fair in the Keynes Atrium. Over a dozen school associations and teacher training providers will be on hand to answer your questions about teaching and what they can offer you.
If you are thinking about a career in teaching, or would just like more information about what teaching involves and the options that are open to you, the Routes into Teaching talk and the Teaching Fair are the key events for you during the Employability Festival. You can sign up to attend the Routes into Teaching session via this link, and you can find out more information about the Teaching Fair here.
