Routes into teaching

Getting into teaching

The Teaching Agency is responsible for initial teacher training in England.

They provide a comprehensive programme of support to help you become a teacher, providing guidance all the way through the application process.

Visit the Department for Education website to find out more about the available routes into teaching, what it's like to be a teacher and what salary you can expect.

Graduate and Registered Teaching Programmes

We no longer run Graduate and Registered Teacher Programmes.

These have been replaced by the School Direct programmes, run by the Teaching Agency.

Find out about the full range of teacher training options available for you to attain qualified teacher status.

Overseas trained teachers

We welcome teachers from overseas to apply for positions in our schools, and many overseas trained teachers have enjoyed a successful teaching experience in Brent.

If your thinking about teaching in Brent or the UK, the Department for Education website provides lots of information on career opportunities available to you, and the rules and regulations for your employment.
