Routes into teaching

A career in teaching will provide you with the skills and opportunity to inspire the next generation. It's not just a job but a career that can be challenging and rewarding and at the end of the day you can go home feeling that you have made a difference.

If you're interested in teaching the Get into Teaching website provides a really good starting point outlining what options are available in terms of subjects, training and possible funding. You might also like to try the UCAS teacher training website.

The Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL) has produced a useful Routes into Teaching map to help to clairify the array of routes into the profession - this can be accessed here
