How can I become a teacher?

There are many different routes you can take to become a qualified teacher working in early years, primary, secondary and further education.  A great way to find out, what teaching is really like is to arrange classroom experience in a local school or college for 2-3 weeks.  This will provide a valuable insight into what teaching is really like and hear first-hand from practising teachers about their own individual experiences. 

There are a host of excellent resources and websites, where you can find further information about the different teaching routes from entry requirements, experience and financial support available:
