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.

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.

I applied for a teaching assistant role through Step into Teaching, after graduating from university and I was amazed by Neil's quick response. He proceeded by providing me with more information with regards to the job and invited me for a meeting. The process was very informative and in a relaxed environment. Neil himself was wonderful which put me at ease. After I had submitted all the required documents, an interview was arranged with the school's principal and following this, I was offered the job with immediate start.

Step into Teaching has been the best experience I've had with any agency in terms of quick service, communication, efficiency and tailoring to the applicants' needs. The overall service was simply impeccable and a highlight has been how much I was always being considered and treated with respect. I highly recommend Step into Teaching to anyone envisaging a teaching career.
