Come to one of our free information events

We hold regular information events for both graduates and career changers. These open and relaxed sessions give are a great opportunity for you to meet other potential trainees and to put all of your questions, big and small, to our team.

We are also at university fairs up and down the country – if we are on a campus near you, do come and speak to us.

Experience life in a school

The best way to find out what it’s really like to be a teacher is to experience a working classroom yourself. If you are currently at university or a recent graduate, you can apply for one of our Insight Days. Run throughout the year, they give applicants the opportunity to see what happens inside a classroom.

Transform lives, including your own.
