Our events are a great opportunity to find out more about our teacher training courses, whether you are at University, a career changer or even studying A-levels and considering which degree course to take with a view of teaching in the future.

We often have current trainees at events who are available to talk to and give a real-life experience of being a Trainee as well as our team to discuss finance, applications and placements.

If you are considering a career in teaching, school experience is preferred and beneficial at the application and interview stage. Visit our school experience page to find out more about the days we offer.
