Get Into Teaching North East
NATIONAL TEACHER RECRUITMENT DRIVE COMING TO THE NORTH EAST
New programme of free events for people curious about teaching as a career and those ready to step into the classroom
A national recruitment campaign is coming to the North East to encourage young people starting out in the world of work and those considering switching jobs to find out more about life as a teacher.
The free Get Into Teaching event aims to inspire more people in the area to join a unique profession that helps shape the lives of the next generation.
The Get Into Teaching North East event will include opportunities to meet current teachers from local schools, talk to expert advisers, and connect with others interested in teaching. Information will also be available about how to fund your training – tax-free bursaries of up to £27,000 to train as a teacher are available in selected subjects.
It is part of a new programme of events taking place in different locations across England in November, organised by the national Get Into Teaching campaign, which provides a comprehensive programme of support to help people become teachers.
Liam Thompson from Manor Community Academy, Hartlepool, is one of a number of teachers who will be on hand at the event. Reflecting on his career to date, computer science teacher Liam said: “As a teacher, you have the unique opportunity to help young people fulfil their potential and help them discover who they are - the impact you have goes well beyond their classroom years. What motivates me most about my role is knowing how much of a positive impact you can have on a child’s life.
The event, from 4.30pm to 8pm on Wednesday 30 November at St James' Park, Strawberry Place, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 4ST, is open to everyone – from the career curious, to those ready to apply – and will be packed with information and advice on the steps to becoming a teacher.
