Returning to Teaching

If you have already qualified as a teacher, and would like to get back into the classroom, please get in touch with our friendly team. We can arrange some school experience for you at one of our partnership schools and offer some guidance about looking for the right job. You can find a list of all the schools we work with here.

The Department for Education offers support to former teachers considering returning to teach any secondary subject, and their expert return-to-teaching advisers can provide support every step of the way.

This video explains how a return-to-teaching adviser can assist in supporting a former teacher to return, including:

·         the application process, such as writing a personal statement and preparing for an interview

·         accessing courses to enhance their subject knowledge

·         finding teaching vacancies

Those interested in accessing support can register on the return to teaching website, where they can also access the latest guidance and advice to aid their return. They can also register for exclusive return to teaching events and find information on a range of areas, such as curriculum, pensions as well as flexible working.
