A national recruitment campaign is coming to Southampton to encourage local people to find out more about life as a teacher. The session aims to inspire more people in the region to join a unique profession that helps shape the lives of the next generation.
Anyone interested in finding out more about the benefits and rewards of teaching can visit the Train to Teach event in Southampton at Novotel on Tuesday 12th October 2021 from 4.30pm to 7.30pm. Registration in advance is advisable but visitors can turn up and register on the day.
Visitors will be able to find out how to get into teaching from expert advisers, training providers and local teachers.
The event is part of a programme of events organised across different towns and cities by the national Get Into Teaching campaign, which provides a comprehensive programme of support to help graduates become teachers.
About 10,000 people attend a series of Train to Teach events every year. At the latest event, attendees will be able to chat with current teachers to find out what a day in the life of a teacher is really like, and get one-to-one advice from teaching experts on their application. Information will be also available about how to fund your training.
Being a teacher means having an impact on students well beyond the classroom years. In recent research of over 2,000 people for Get into Teaching, two fifths (40%) of adults surveyed in England work in a job or career related to one of their favourite subjects from their time at school, and almost three quarters (74%) of those surveyed who have a favourite subject, said their teachers’ passion for the subject helped spark their interest in it.
As a teacher you can help create a society where everyone, wherever they live, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, education or age has the opportunity to succeed.
The Get Into Teaching service has experienced advisers available to give free support and advice.
