Teaching Roadshow Coming To University Of Cumbria

The University of Cumbria is hosting a 'Train to Teach' roadshow in Lancaster this month.  

It'll give people the chance to find out about the rewards and opportunities a career in teaching offers.

The roadshow is part of the annual Get Into Teaching campaign, aimed at encouraging more graduates with the passion and potential to teach.

It's being held at the Alexandra Building on Bowerham Road from 3pm to 7pm on 14th November.  

The event offers a chance for aspiring teachers to get all their questions about a career in teaching answered in one place.
 
The event, organised by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL), will highlight the competitive starting salaries and excellent employment prospects. It will also highlight the financial support available, such as getting a £26,000 tax-free bursary to train as a teacher.

Attendees will be able to meet representatives from schools and universities that provide teacher training, gain insights into how to make a strong application, and receive one-to-one advice from current teachers and teaching experts.

Applications for teacher training starting in September next year are now open and popular courses fill up fast.

Roger Pope, Chair of the National College for Teaching and Leadership, an executive agency of the Department for Education that provides a comprehensive programme of support for aspiring teachers, said: “Good teachers are in demand and the career provides excellent employment prospects with the opportunity to progress quickly. 

"Alongside the generous bursaries and scholarships on offer, we provide a comprehensive programme of support to help people become teachers.
 
“The Train to Teach roadshow in Lancaster isn’t only for graduates – every year, we see people from other sectors switching to teaching, bringing a wealth of experience to help inspire the next generation.”
 
A range of online workshops and campus pop-up events offering support are also being held throughout this term.
