Career Changing into the Teaching Profession

Arthur Terry National Teaching School

As one of the first nationally approved teaching schools the Arthur Terry National Teaching School leads a range of education services from initial teacher education through to CPD at all stages of school leadership for those within our learning partnership and the wider geographical location. The Arthur Terry National Teaching School also leads on school to school support from Specialist and National Leaders of Education. These are specialists in their chosen fields and offer bespoke support for those schools and individuals in need.

The School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) programme at the Arthur Terry National Teaching School has gone from strength to strength and has been responsible for training over 100 teachers across the city and beyond in the first 5 years of its existence. We receive applicants form a whole range of individuals from those fresh post-graduates out of University through to career changers in Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, English, Geography, History, Religious Education, Drama, Modern Foreign Languages and Physical Education.

In recent years the UK Government funded Get into Teaching Bursaries have been particularly useful in securing associate teachers in their initial teacher training year from a range of industry backgrounds from HR managers and finance auditors to firefighters. For many, receiving the bursary can negate some of the concerns of relinquishing a salary during the training year. Each and every associate teacher has their own strengths and areas for development but we do find that those who have been immersed in professional roles already enter with a significant focus and drive to be successful in the teaching profession.

Some of our career changes have not used their subject knowledge gained during their academic studies for a significant amount of years and so there are two major routes we take. The first happens prior to joining the course. Some associate teachers undertake a bursary funded Subject Knowledge Enhancement course approved by the National College for Teaching and Learning. The second key subject knowledge development we do is to set subject knowledge based targets that run concurrently with the teacher training to ensure that the associate teachers truly develop the required levels of subject knowledge and academia to be an outstanding teacher within their chosen subject.

Effective mentoring and leadership is our biggest unique selling point to our SCITT course and is important for younger graduates as well as career changers. The way we approach the leadership structure within the Arthur Terry National Teaching School is inclusive and bespoke. All associate teachers are mentored by learning coaches on their school placements who work with them within their lessons on a day by day basis. There are professional coaches who act as the unbiased mentor within schools as well as PGCE tutors and Subject Pedagogy Leads who are all proficient and well respected individuals in their own fields, many of whom have studied Education to Masters level qualification, who deliver the subject specialisms alongside teaching pedagogy.
