Prepare for the Fair: Understanding the Routes into Teaching hosted by The University of Leeds and Red Kit Teacher Training

Date: 26 April 2017
Time: 13:00

Booking and Further Information

This talk is designed to give an overview of the routes into teaching and the things you should take into consideration when choosing an initial teacher training (ITT) course. It will cover University-led PGCE courses, School Direct courses and SCITT courses – how to apply, fees and finance and general entry requirements.

There will be a number of ITT programme providers at the Careers Fair the following week on 3rd May. If you use this talk to ‘Prepare for the Fair’ you should feel ready to ask questions of providers as you look for a teacher training course, and you should feel clearer in making the right choice of training route for you.

This talk is open to all years and all degree disciplines – it doesn’t matter if you’re in your final year and ready to train, or you’re in your first year and just doing your research early.
