Interested in a career in teaching in the South West of England?

Then come along to a Train to Teach Taster Day on Thursday 28th September 2017 at Ivybridge Community College.

SWTSA (South West Teaching School Alliance) is delighted to be hosting a train to teach day for anyone considering becoming a teacher.

This will be an ideal opportunity for prospective teachers to receive face to face help and advice about teacher training provision in the South West. High quality providers will be on hand to offer guidance on teaching as a career, the application process and the models of training available. There will be a mix of all phases represented (early years, primary and secondary) and formal presentations will be delivered at least twice throughout the evening.

The event is being held in an Ofsted graded 'Outstanding' secondary school just off the main A38 corridor between Exeter and Plymouth.
