A NATIONAL recruitment campaign is coming to Bournemouth in a bid to encourage people to become teachers.

The Train to Teach event will be held at the Hilton Bournemouth in Terrace Road on Tuesday November 26 from 5pm until 8pm.

It is one of a series of events being hosted across the country by the Get Into Teaching campaign, from the Department for Education.

Registration in advance is advisable but visitors can turn up and register on the day.

Applications for teacher training, starting in September 2020, are now open.
