Alternative routes into teaching...

Discussion in 'Thinking of teaching' started by rockwhatever, Mar 3, 2011.

  1. Hello all,
    I have recently been informed that I did not make it onto the local GTP scheme. After finding this out I looked into PGCE but the financial issue of not working has made this impossible for me to pursue.
    A colleague at work told me about schemes similar to the GTP which are run by 'charities' who offer a route into teaching.
    I am absolutely DESPERATE to teach English. My current employer has already agreed to let me train there. It is frustrating to say the least!
    Does anyone know of any alternative routes into teaching?
    If you can help me you will honestly change my life!!!

  2. The 'charity' is 'Teach First'. Not sure what their entry requirements are (I think they now run schemes called 'teach now' and 'teach later'). A Google search will track them down and yiu can see if you qualify.
  3. Thanks you. That's really nice of you. I'll have a look now.
