Get Into Teaching
LOCAL PRIMARY TEACHER CALLS ON PEOPLE IN MANCHESTER TO JOIN THEM IN SHAPING THE NEXT GENERATION
National teacher recruitment drive goes virtual connecting Manchester residents with local teachers and training providers
People in Manchester 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 event will take place on Thursday 26th November 2020 from 4.30pm to 7.30pm and will be supported by a local teacher Hannah Fitzpatrick from Plymouth Grove Primary School in Manchester. At the event, Hannah will be live on the platform to share her experience and insights, as well as helping others to explore teaching as a career.
When asked about the kind of things a career in teaching most enables them to do, two fifths (40%) of teachers surveyed* in the North West earlier this year cited ‘knowing they are making a difference in the world’.
The Train to Teach events are part of the national Get into Teaching campaign, from the Department for Education. 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.
