The event offers a chance for aspiring teachers to get all their questions about a career in teaching answered in one place. It will highlight starting salaries and employment prospects as well as the financial support available, including the £26,000 tax-free bursaries avaliable to train as a teacher.

Attendees will be able to meet representatives from schools and universities that provide teacher training, gain insights into how to make a strong application, and receive one-to-one advice from current teachers and teaching experts.

Roger Pope, spokesperson for the Get Into Teaching campaign and chair of the National College for Teaching and Leadership, said: “Good teachers are in demand and the career provides excellent employment prospects with the opportunity to progress quickly. Alongside the generous bursaries and scholarships on offer, we provide a comprehensive programme of support to help people become teachers.

“The Train to Teach roadshow in Brighton isn’t only for graduates – every year, we see people from other sectors switching to teaching, bringing a wealth of experience to help inspire the next generation.”

The event will be held at the Checkland Building at the Falmer campus, from 4.30pm to 7.30pm.
