Train to Teach Bournemouth
People in the South East 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 ‘Bournemouth Train to Teach’ event will be supported by a teacher from the region, Elisha Taylor from St. John’s Primary and Nursery School in Southampton. At the event, Elisha 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, over four in 10 (43%) teachers surveyed* in the South East 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.
People will need to register for the online event in advance. On the day, upon entering the virtual event platform, attendees will be greeted with welcome videos and introductory presentations to give them a flavour of teaching. They can also enter the live marketplace where there will be experienced teacher training advisors, current teachers and local teacher training providers who can answer any questions.
You could receive a £24,000 tax-free bursary to train as a teacher, in selected subjects, and newly qualified teachers start on a minimum starting salary of £25,000 to £32,000, depending on location.
from 4:30pm to 7:30pm, free.
