Unqualified Teachers

Do you currently teach? Are you looking to become formally qualified?

The Assessment Only Route is for people with considerable experience teaching in schools or educational settings but without QTS.

Achieving QTS through the Assessment Only Route normally takes one term. You present a portfolio of your experience, which we assess against QTS standards.

Career Changers

No matter where you start, you finish as a highly employable teacher

Are you looking for a new challenge? To inspire children? To apply your experience in a new context?

Teaching gives you immense job satisfaction on a daily basis, while allowing you to use your existing skills in a different way.

Over our 15 years training teachers we’ve worked with people from all walks of life. Our trainees have been ex-rugby players, service leavers, multinational businessmen, homemakers and more.

Educate training is so well suited to career changers because we take a highly personalised approach. No matter where you’ve come from, we take your experience, help you fill your gaps and support you to become an exceptional teacher.

Practical classroom experience is the best way to become an effective, inspirational teacher

When you’ve spent your whole life studying, university-based teacher training seems like the obvious choice.

However, when you want to become an exceptional teacher there’s no substitute for learning in the classroom, supported by teachers and mentors.

We’ve structured our teacher training to give you the perfect mix of practical experience and academic study. You’ll complete your year-long training with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and, if you choose, a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).

You’ll flourish with our personalised support, and be confident and competent when you stand up on your first day as a qualified teacher.

Teaching Assistants

If you are currently a teaching assistant looking to become a teacher, we have the perfect course for you

Every year a significant number of our trainees are people who have made the decision to make the move from being a teaching assistant to becoming a teacher.

It is a natural step up – working as a teaching assistant gives you the perfect introduction to teaching, so you are well equipped to become a teacher.

Our school-based training allows you to train in a location that suits you, which means you don’t have to travel to a university on a daily basis. You will remain in the classroom – so there is no big change of routine.
