"Step Into Teaching is an innovative initiative; focusing on enticing high quality graduates into the teaching profession. We have secured several graduates to date across our schools and have been delighted with their professionalism and drive. Individuals have contributed towards particular areas of school improvement; providing skills, knowledge and capacity. Working in our schools prior to their initial teacher training at South Birmingham SCITT provides us with opportunities to secure recruitment and retention into the profession."
What is Step Into Teaching?
Step Into Teaching is an experience programme for graduates to help choose teaching as their number one career choice.
The programme is designed to provide talented graduates with practical school-based experience that lays the foundations for a long-lasting, successful career.
Step Into Teaching aims to help every learner achieve their full potential, increase the growth of new teachers entering the classroom and raise teacher retention levels.
Our programme is for all graduates, from all universities, with any degree. All we ask is that you are serious about a career in working with young people, have a can-do attitude and are ready to make a difference in the classroom.
Our programme offers ITT support across the UK, in all schools, Key Stages and subject areas.
Inspire the next generation - Take your first step towards becoming a teacher.
We are currently working alongside several school-based ITT providers who offer School Direct, SCITT, Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeship and Assessment Only routes to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Together, we will deliver a new approach to school-based teacher training by simplifying the entry process and providing a clear career progression plan.
