Step Into Teaching - for graduates

The Step Into Teaching Programme provides fantastic opportunities for graduates to ‘earn as you learn' – Yes, that means you earn a salary while you gain experience working in an actual classroom!

On top of earning money, you will get personal development opportunities and learn transferable skills. Teach a subject you are enthusiastic about and lead from the front. Benefit from teaching as part of an experienced team (delivery of focus intervention groups) and on your own.

You will learn how to prepare and plan for lessons to the curriculum, build positive relationships with school staff, pupils and parents and get involved in extracurricular activities.

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?
