Train to Teach London
March 27 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
People in London are being encouraged to join a virtual careers event to find out more about life as a teacher. The session, part of a national recruitment drive, aims to inspire more people in the region to join a unique profession that helps shape the lives of the next generation.
The free virtual ‘Train to Teach London’ event will take place on Saturday and will be supported by a local teacher Dimitra Totikidou from Orleans Park School Twickenham. At the event, maths teacher Dimitra will be live on the platform to share her experience and insights, as well as helping others to explore teaching as a career.
The Train to Teach events are part of the national Get into Teaching campaign which provides a comprehensive programme of support to help graduates become teachers. Last year alone, thousands of aspiring teachers attended a series of face-to-face events. For this academic year and in light of ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, events are being hosted online so anyone curious or set on a career in teaching can still speak to current teachers from their area, as well as expert advisers who can help them with training options and next steps.
To gain access to the online event, people will need to register at least two working days in advance. On the day, upon entering the virtual event platform, attendees will be greeted with welcome videos and introductory presentations to give them a flavour of teaching. They can also enter the live marketplace where there will be experienced teacher training advisors, current teachers and local teacher training providers who can answer any questions.
You could receive a £24,000 tax-free bursary to train as a teacher, in selected subjects, and newly qualified teachers start on a minimum starting salary of £25,000 to £32,000, depending on location.
Applications for teacher training, starting in September 2021, are now open.
