WHAT CAREER CAN YOU HAVE?
In addition to the many masters' and PhD graduates, each year we have over 500 students become newly qualified teachers (NQTs). Our excellent links with local schools ensure that our employment rates are consistently high, with well over 90 per cent of our NQTs finding a teaching job last year.
With pay scales to match other industries, job security, an excellent pension and better work-life balance, teaching is becoming one of the most sought-after professions of today. Our masters' and professional courses have allowed many teachers to gain promotion within their institutions. A number of students also continue their studies onto EdD/PhD courses to develop a career in educational research.
A good undergraduate honours degree (or equivalent from a university outside the UK) plus grade C or above in GCSE mathematics, science and English or equivalent. Prior experience (minimum two weeks) in a maintained primary or Early Years school required. You will also need to pass the Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) skills tests and undertake a criminal record and occupational health check.
