Get Into Teaching

Today, as part of the national Department for Education's (DfE) Get Into Teaching campaign, the DfE are urging career changers to consider becoming a teacher.

The release is targeted at young people following research that found two thirds (67%) of the millennial workforce are likely to make a major change to their current job or career in the near future.  This was covered by the Times, I News, the Sun, the Mail, the Mirror, the Telegraph and the Metro.

The Times includes a case study of a 33 year old who retrained to be a teacher after working for a global retailer. Gareth Williams now works at Barking Abbey School in East London and says it was ‘one of the best decisions he ever made’.

School Standards Minister Nick Gibb said:

I am sure all of us can remember the dedicated and committed teachers who guided us through our time at school – so it’s no surprise that two-thirds of young people think that following in their footsteps would be a rewarding career.

This year we have announced a 2.75% pay rise for teachers, alongside outlining plans for starting salaries to rise to £30,000 by 2022-23.

So I would urge anyone looking for a career where they can have a real impact on the lives of children to consider joining the the thousands of dedicated teachers working in our classrooms.''
