Career opportunities

A career for the future

Get ready and embrace your love of learning as you will be in the best place to do so. Teachers are kept up-to-date with the latest research, innovations in teaching and technology, child and educational psychology, best practice and subject knowledge development.

There truly has never been a better time to get started, with the most ambitious and exciting reforms to teacher development in a generation are already underway. The roots of the government's golden thread of teacher development can be found interwoven throughout initial teacher training before you progress as an early career teacher (the Early Career Framework). Three years of training, support, mentoring and instructional coaching ensure that you have everything you need to flourish as a new teacher.

There are many chances for good teachers to climb the career ladder and our suite of specialist and leadership National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) lead on from the induction period.

Schools within the Teaching School Hub area are commitment to the continued professional development of teachers and leaders. Many of the teacher training providers in our Teaching School Hub area work at the forefront of developing this within the Early Career Framework. 

A competitive salary and great benefits

You will earn a competitive, secure salary and have access to a wealth of other benefits (professional development, a generous pension and holiday allowance). 

Teachers talk about making a real difference to pupils’ learning and lives - and the job satisfaction that comes with a career in teaching. Find out how teachers are helping pupils realise their ambitions and enjoying every moment.
