Teacher recruitment information

If you are a candidate who could benefit from SKE, or for more information including funding, please see below.

 'Find' postgraduate teacher training service and UCAS applications

Candidates can now apply for a teacher training course via UCAS, and to help them identify the right course we encourage you to promote the new 'Find’ postgraduate teacher training service, which launched on 2 October 2018. This new service allows initial teacher training providers to say more about their training offer, making it easier for candidates to find the course that is right for them. 

Once candidates have found a course, they will be directed to the UCAS Teacher Training application system to complete their application.

Subject knowledge enhancement (SKE) courses

Subject knowledge enhancement (SKE) courses can support candidates who do not have a degree in the subject they would like to teach.

Long courses are available now in biology, chemistry, computing, design and technology, English, geography, languages, maths, physics, primary maths and religious education. Courses are fully funded by the DfE to equip candidates with the knowledge they need to start an ITT course in one of these subject areas.

If you have a candidate who could benefit from SKE, or for more information including funding, please speak to an SKE provider. For any queries, please contact ske.inbox@education.gov.uk.

Future Teaching Scholars programme 

Recruitment is now underway for the fourth cohort of the Future Teaching Scholars programme, targeted at students starting their undergraduate degree in 2019.

The programme is designed for maths and physics A level students with predicted grades of B or above; students must select a maths or physics related degree at an English university, and be interested in a career in teaching. The programme is also open to international students, mature applicants, and career changers with equivalent qualifications.
 
Participants receive a £15,000 grant whilst studying their degree and gain classroom experience to prepare them for teaching. After graduating, participants go onto bespoke employment-based teacher training and receive additional support for 2 years.
