Get Into Teaching - West Midlands

Programme of free events for people curious about teaching as a career and those ready to step into the classroom

A recruitment drive is coming to the West Midlands 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 profession that helps shape the lives of the next generation.

The Get Into Teaching West Midlands 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 this spring, organised by Get Into Teaching, which provides a comprehensive programme of support to help people become teachers.
According to a recent national survey* for Get Into Teaching, the majority (80%) of students and graduates agree they’ll know they’ve found the right career path when it combines their passion for a topic and the opportunity to make an impact.
Post-graduate teacher training typically lasts one year, with new trainees starting courses each September. Applications to train from this autumn are now open.

Roger Pope, spokesperson for the Get Into Teaching campaign said: “This event is a fantastic opportunity to explore everything you need to know about a career that really does change lives and allow you to make your mark on the world
The event, from 10am to 2.30pm on Saturday 25th March at Birmingham Conference and Events Centre, Hill Street, Birmingham, B5 4EW, 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.
