The Coalition Government believes that Armed Service leavers can bring great benefit to schools and can have a positive effect on teaching and learning. Under the Troops to Teachers programme it is likely that there will be opportunities for both non-graduate and graduate Armed Service leavers to enter teaching, work in schools or undertake leadership opportunities.
Full details of the new Troops to Teachers programme are not available yet. However there are a number of teacher training options for you to choose from if you are interested in becoming a teacher right now.
You are required to achieve qualified teacher status (QTS) to teach in state-maintained schools in England. You can use our quick and easy tool to determine which route is best for you to gain QTS.
