Entering teaching can be a daunting task. Where to start? How do I gain QTS? Do I need a PGCE as well? How long does it take? How much will it cost me?
Time and time again, we have heard from graduates who have been misled or are on the wrong trajectory for their ambitions, so it’s important you are clued up on all your options before starting your teaching journey.
As graduate specialists, our consultants at EdEx provide so much more than a job. We offer career advice, guidance and support to ensure graduates are on the best pathway to get into teaching.
Aside from the typical PGCE avenue, there are now countless training providers and routes into teaching. The government’s “Get Into Teaching” website and advisors are fantastic, but it does seem to neglect the fact that there are salaried training options, unqualified training options and more.
If you are a graduate interested in teaching, we recommend doing your research thoroughly before taking the leap, as there are different options for different people depending on your timelines, finances and personal preferences.
If you need an extra helping hand, get in touch with one of the team at EdEx, who will gladly help and offer free advice.
