PEOPLE in Bournemouth are being encouraged to find out about the rewards and opportunities a career in teaching offers by attending the Train to Teach roadshow when it visits the Hilton Hotel on Tuesday March 6.

The event - part of the annual Get Into Teaching campaign - is aimed at encouraging more graduates with the passion and potential to teach.

It offers a chance for aspiring teachers to get all their questions about a career in teaching answered in one place. It will highlight the starting salaries and employment prospects as well as the financial support available.

Attendees will be able to meet representatives from schools and universities that provide teacher training, gain insights into how to make a strong application, and receive one-to-one advice from current teachers and teaching experts.

Applications for teacher training starting in September 2018 are now open.

Roger Pope, spokesperson for the Get Into Teaching campaign and Chair of the National College for Teaching and Leadership, said: "Good teachers are in demand and the career provides excellent employment prospects with the opportunity to progress quickly.

"The Train to Teach roadshow in Bournemouth isn’t only for graduates. Every year, we see people from other sectors switching to teaching, bringing a wealth of experience to help inspire the next generation."

The event will be held at the Hilton in Terrace Road from 4.30pm until 8pm.
