Get an adviser

If you’re thinking about teaching in England, an adviser can provide free, one-to-one support through phone, text or email. You can talk to them as little or as much as needed.

All our advisers have years of teaching experience and can help you whether you’re just thinking about teaching, or you’re ready to get back into the classroom.

Your adviser can help you:

  • get school experience
  • discover what teaching is really like
  • write your personal statement
  • find out how to improve your subject knowledge
  • understand the qualifications you need
  • find a teaching role

Who can get an adviser?

You'll need to have or be studying for a bachelor's degree in any subject to get an adviser. If you already have a degree, it needs to be a 2:2 or higher.

If you’re thinking about returning to teaching, you'll need to have qualified teacher status (QTS) and want to teach a secondary subject in England to get an adviser.

Non-UK trainees

To get an adviser, you'll need to have or be studying for an overseas qualification of the same standard as a UK bachelor’s degree, class 2:2 (honours) or higher.
