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.

My experience with Step into Teaching has been nothing short of enjoyable. From brilliant managerial skills, to endless support, my time has set me up accordingly to delve into the world of teaching, armed with vital experience and timeless knowledge. 

After moving from Cardiff to Birmingham with my ideal job with Step Into Teaching, the whole team have been wholeheartedly supportive and reassuring with my progression and helped me go from strength to strength in my teaching career after helping me secure a permanent role at my current school. If you could choose to be with any graduate ITT program, why not be with the best?
