There are many different routes you can take to become a qualified teacher working in early years, primary, secondary and further education.  A great way to find out, what teaching is really like is to arrange classroom experience in a local school or college for 2-3 weeks.  This will provide a valuable insight into what teaching is really like and hear first-hand from practising teachers about their own individual experiences. 


There are a host of excellent resources and websites, where you can find further information about the different teaching routes from entry requirements, experience and financial support available.

We would certainly encourage you to book an appointment to see a careers adviser to discuss the most suitable teaching training route for you.
