Thousands of former teachers return to the profession in the UK every year.
But after a few years out of the classroom, we recognise the decision to return can be a daunting one, particularly with recent changes to the education system.
"Thank you for an inspiring course. You have really boosted my confidence and I am excited to return to teaching.”
Our FREE Return to Teaching programme is back and aims to make that transition far easier.
Starting on 12 October 2017, the intensive course will give you the confidence, skills and support you need to be school-ready.
The course will feature separate, tailored sessions for primary and secondary-trained teachers and include:
- Up to six days of professional development, covering curriculum changes and classroom management
- Help and support with job matching and applications

“I found the course enormously useful. There was lots of practical advice, but it was also really good on pedagogy.”
The previous programme, run earlier this year, led to eight participants successfully returning to the classroom within the first few weeks of completing the course.
With nine in ten Essex schools currently rated as good or outstanding by Ofsted and many schools offering flexible and part-time roles, there has never been a better time to return to the classroom.
So whether you have taken time out of the profession to raise a family, pursue another career or work as a supply teacher, our Return to Teaching programme could give you just the boost you need.
“The programme has made me 100% more confident about teaching in all key stages and applying for a job when I am ready.”
Returning to teaching could mean an end to the horrendous work commute, the chance to rediscover a passion for making a real difference to young people’s lives and the opportunity to enjoy an interesting and varied career where no day is ever the same.
Participants on the course must:
- Be qualified with UK QTS
- Show a clear desire to return to the teaching profession
- Be eligible to work in the UK
- Demonstrate a commitment to the learning of pupils
Book your place here by 28 September 2017.
“The course has been invaluable in the knowledge I gained and in boosting my confidence for those interviews.”
