Aspiring teachers from Milton Keynes with the passion and potential to teach are being encouraged to attend the Train to Teach roadshow when it comes to The Jurys Inn Milton Keynes next month.
Visitors to the event, organised by the National College for Teaching and Leadership, 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.
The event will provide information on the competitive starting salaries, as well as the rewards that teaching has to offer.
Roger Pope is 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:“Good teachers are in demand and there are excellent employment prospects,” he said.
“The generous bursaries and scholarships available this year mean more talented graduates will be able to teach the subject they love.
“This event isn’t only for new graduates – every year, we see people from other sectors who switch to teaching, bringing a wealth of experience to help inspire the next generation.
“Teaching is a fantastic career choice and I strongly encourage anyone from Milton Keynes and the local area with the passion and potential to teach to attend this event. It is a brilliant opportunity to get all of your questions answered if you are thinking about teaching as a career,” he added.
The free Train to Teach event is being held at The Jurys Inn Milton Keynes, Midsummer Boulevard, Milton Keynes on March 2, 2017, from 4.30 to 8pm.
Registration in advance is advised by going to https://traintoteach.education.gov.uk/sign-up Participants can also register on the day.
