Opportunity for a Lifetime

The personalised training and support you need to become an exceptional teacher

Feel Successful Every Day

Whether you’re finishing university or looking for a career change, teaching provides you with fulfilment and exhilaration on a daily basis. This is because every pupil has the capacity to learn, and as an outstanding teacher you’re able to inspire growth and a love of learning.

In more than 15 years training teachers, we’ve found that personalised, school-led training gives you the best foundation for future success. Our high levels of support are key to our exceptional results – all of our 2013-2014 trainees qualified as good or outstanding, and more than 90% had employment lined up for the coming academic year.

Learn how we’ll help you become an exceptional teacher who makes a tangible difference to pupils’ lives every day.

If you’ve already decided teaching is the career path for you and you’re ready to train with Educate, find out how to apply here.

You’re in the best place to learn how to do the job – working alongside expert practitioners in school – but also have the opportunity to apply theoretical ideas directly and immediately to your practice. The combination of these two essential elements means that, at the end of your training, you’re ready to be a Newly Qualified Teacher who can take up your first teaching position with confidence, competence and a full awareness of the role.
