A question we ask ourselves a lot these days ‘whats in it for me ?’

This is especially true when you are funding your training yourself.  What will the course do for me, do I want to be a teacher, will I be any good at it?

If this sounds like you the PTLLS course is a great place to start on the teaching journey.

The LSIS have produced an advice website for people wanting to go into further education training.  This could be vocational, functional skills or private training in companies.  So if you are wondering if teaching is for you or indeed what is in it for you have a look.

  • plenty of training opportunities to help you develop your skills as a teacher and to raise the quality of what you do
  • flexible working – part-time, full-time, or in addition to your current profession. For example, you may teach nursing whilst continuing to work as a nurse. Staying in your current field of work means your teaching benefits from real-life experience which is up to date, and it keeps you sharp.
  • the chance to become qualified whilst working and getting paid
  • a chance to progress in your career
