A national recruitment campaign is coming to Leeds to encourage local people to find out more about life as a teacher. The session aims to inspire more people in the region to join a unique profession that helps shape the lives of the next generation.
Anyone interested in finding out more about the benefits and rewards of teaching can visit the Train to Teach Question Time event at the Queens Hotel in Leeds on Tuesday 21st September 2021 from 5pm to 8pm. Registration in advance is advisable but visitors can turn up and register on the day.
As part of the event, visitors will be able to get answers to all their questions about how to get into teaching from a special panel made up of expert advisers, training providers and teachers – including local science teacher Rachel Shaw.
The event is part of a programme of events organised across different towns and cities by the national Get Into Teaching campaign, which provides a comprehensive programme of support to help graduates become teachers.
About 10,000 people attend a series of Train to Teach events every year. At the latest event, visitors will be able to chat with current teachers and find out what a day in the life of a teacher is really like. Information will be also available about the application process and how to fund your training.
Being a teacher means having an impact on students well beyond the classroom years. In recent research of over 2,000 people for Get into Teaching, two fifths* (40%) of adults surveyed in England work in a job or career related to one of their favourite subjects from their time at school, and almost three quarters** (74%) of those surveyed who have a favourite subject, said their teachers’ passion for the subject helped spark their interest in it1.
As a teacher you can help create a society where everyone, wherever they live, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, education or age has the opportunity to succeed. The Get Into Teaching service has experienced advisers available to give free support and advice.
