Due to the popularity of previous teaching careers events, we're delighted to host the first Teaching Forum for students on-campus.

Featuring recruiters and teaching professionals this evening is a chance for you to hear from different teaching providers and ask them your burning questions about how to get into the field.

The evening is divided into two sections:

Presentation Panel
5.30-6.30pm: Teaching professionals who work in all available education settings will be available to offer advice and insights in BLT1.

The teachers come from a primary school (5-11), a secondary school (11-18), a further education college (16-18) and a specialist school for children with learning difficulties (5-18).

The presentations will focus on what it is like to be a teacher in that setting: what the rewarding and challenging parts of the job are, and how to decide whether an option is right for you. Jobs in different settings can have a very different focus: working individually with special needs children can be very different to managing the learning of 30 18-year olds in an FE college.

6.30-8.00pm: Network with teaching recruiters and speakers in the Bourne foyer (next to BLT1). Find out more about different schemes and work experience opportunities.

There will be stands from two schools direct consortia, (learn to teach within a school); Weydon School and Ark Schools. Teachfirst will also be attending. Teachfirst is an organisation that promotes social equality by training teachers in schools with high numbers of children with free school meals. St. Mary's, a university based teacher training provider, will also be in attendance. Many students choose to teach English as a foreign language prior to becoming a teacher so there will be a TEFL provider to help you decide whether that is right for you. 

Teaching events are very popular so early booking is recommended to guarantee your spot! Also earn Passport Points by attending this event!
