Get into teaching with Troops to Teachers

University of Brighton - Troops to Teachers

Teaching is a popular retraining choice for people from all walks of life. The Troops to Teachers non-graduate programme offers eligible Service leavers the opportunity to qualify as a teacher in just two years.

Run by the University of Brighton, the programme matches trainees with a school in their home location and is a mixture of employment-based training, intensive study weeks and weekly web-based university studies. The programme operates across England, provides a salary during training and has the advantage of no course fees.

The current programme offers courses for those wishing to teach mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, computing or modern foreign languages in secondary schools. All courses start in September 2017.

Career prospects are very good. Troops to Teachers gives schools the opportunity to recruit and select the trainees that best meet their needs, with the expectation that those teachers may go on to work in the school or group of schools in which they trained. Graham Riddle graduated from the programme and is now a science teacher; he said: “If you are thinking about applying – do it. I have never met such an amazing selection of people; staff and students. My studies have given me the confidence of knowing I can teach, and that I do know what I am talking about.

“Besides gaining the degree, which is awesome, I proved to myself that I can achieve something if I try hard enough. The University of Brighton made me believe anything is possible.”
