Pathways into Teaching: Supporting Career Transition among STEM Professionals
What is it?
A programme that provides financial and experiential incentives to facilitate the entry of STEM professionals into teaching. The focus will be on one of the four prioritised sector areas:
- childcare and education;
- engineering and manufacturing.
The programme is divided into two strands: one to provide financial support for industry professionals from the priority sectors listed above to become FE teachers, covering the course costs of teacher training as well as support and mentoring; and another to support the participation and progression of STEM professionals into teaching through a 40-hour paid work placement opportunity and professional development scheme.
This project is part of the Department for Education’s Taking Teaching Further programme managed by the Education and Training Foundation (https://www.et-foundation.co.uk/).
There are 2 programmes available:
Who can apply?
If you are working in any of the priority areas above, then we would like to speak to you about a career in teaching. Your industry knowledge and insight will help inspire the next generation of our workforce into high growth sectors. You do not need to have any experience in teaching or any related qualifications.
