Want to Teach?

Are you interested in pursuing a career in teaching but do not know what options are available to you? Do you want to train to become a teacher but are unsure how to fund it? Or you would like to live and teach abroad as an English language teacher?

DMU are hosting a ‘Want to Teach?’ event on Tuesday 6th February 2018, in Hall 3 in TheVenue, between 11am-2pm. The event will be attended by many different organisations from across the country that offer advice, qualifications, courses or jobs in teaching in the UK and abroad.

During the event, you can find out more about different routes into primary and secondary education teaching including gaining a PGCE and training to become a teacher by working in a school. Or if you are interested in teaching abroad and gaining a TEFL qualification, you can speak with organisations who can help you make this happen.

You will also be able to gain advice about how to fund your training, including government grants and speak to DMU Square Mile which offers education volunteering placements.

To confirm your attendance, please book a place via MyGateway
