Get an adviser

If you want to become a teacher or return to teaching in England, a teacher training adviser can guide you through the process with free one-to-one support.

Your adviser can help you:

  • write your personal statement
  • find a teaching role
  • find out how to improve your subject knowledge

Who can get an adviser?

To get an adviser, you'll need (one of the following):

  • a bachelor's degree, class 2:2 (honours) or higher
  • to be studying for a degree and predicted to get a class 2:2 (honours) 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 and teachers

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.

You can check the UK equivalents of your degree qualifications by calling us on 0800 389 2500.

If you're already qualified as a teacher outside the UK, you'll need to have English qualified teacher status (QTS) and want to teach a secondary subject to get an adviser.
