Get an adviser

If you want to become a teacher or return to teaching in England, a teacher training adviser can guide you through the process with free one-to-one support.

Your adviser will help you with:

  • getting school experience
  • funding your course
  • choosing the right training
  • writing your personal statement
  • interview tips

Who can get an adviser?

You’ll need a bachelor’s degree class 2:2 (honours) or higher, or an overseas qualification that is equivalent.

You can get an adviser if you’re still studying for your degree. Before your final year, you can get advice for when you’re ready to apply. If you’re in your final year, you’ll need a predicted class 2:2 (honours) or higher.

If you’ve worked as a teacher before, and you’re thinking of returning to the profession to teach maths, physics or modern languages, you’ll need qualified teacher status (QTS).
