PEOPLE IN
BRISTOL ENCOURAGED TO TAP INTO THEIR TALENTS AND CONSIDER TEACHING AS A CAREER

 

National
teacher recruitment drive to visit Bristol

 

A national
recruitment campaign is coming to Bristol to encourage local people to
find out more about
life as a teacher. The session aims to inspire more people in the region to
join a unique profession that helps shape the lives of the next generation.

 

Anyone
interested in finding out more about the benefits and rewards of teaching can
visit the Train to
Teach Bristol
event at Mercure Bristol Grand Hotel on
Wednesday
20th October 2021 from 4.30pm to 7.30pm.

 

Visitors will be able to find out how to get into teaching from expert
advisers, training providers and local teachers.

 

The event is part of a programme of events organised across different towns and
cities by the national Get Into Teaching campaign, which provides a comprehensive programme of support
to help graduates become teachers.

 

About 10,000
people attend a series of Train to Teach events every year. At the latest event,
attendees
will
be able to chat with current teachers to find out what a day in the life of a
teacher is really like, and get one-to-one advice from teaching experts on
their application. Information will be also available about how to fund your
training.

 

Reflecting
on his career to date, Sam Rawlings a languages teacher at Patchway Community
School in Bristol, who will be sharing their experience and insights at the
event, said: 

 

“I’m proud to be supporting the campaign and I
would encourage anyone who is just starting out in the world of work, or
looking to switch jobs, to consider a career in teaching.

“Bored of sitting at a computer all day, I took a risk and
retrained as a teacher in my early-thirties. There’s never a dull moment,
teaching is a real challenge, but with immediate impact that feels meaningful.

“I know the impact good teachers can have on a child, not
just in terms of academic success but in teaching a child the importance of
social skills, promoting resilience, self-worth and confidence.”

Being a teacher means having an impact on
students well beyond the classroom years. In recent research of over 2,000
people for Get into Teaching, two fifths* (40%) of adults surveyed in England work
in a job or career related to one of their favourite subjects from their time
at school, and almost three quarters** (74%) of those surveyed who have a
favourite subject, said their teachers’ passion for the subject helped spark
their interest in it1.

 

Roger Pope, spokesperson for the Get Into
Teaching campaign and a National Leader of Education, said:

 

It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that every
lesson is helping to shape the life of a young person.

 

As well as the immense
satisfaction of witnessing students learn and knowing you are influencing who
or what they might become, teaching enables you to tap into your talents and
passion for a particular subject.

 

“It also offers some competitive financial
rewards and long-term prospects.

 

“Anyone who feels they have the passion and potential to
teach should join us for this Train to Teach event in Bristol
.”

 

The free Train to Teach event is being held at Mercure Bristol Grand Hotel,
Broad Street, Bristol, BS1 2EL
on Wednesday
20th October 2021 from 4.30pm to 7.30pm. Registration in advance is advisable but visitors can turn up and register on the day.

 

As a teacher you can help create a society where everyone, wherever they
live, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, education or age has the
opportunity to succeed.
The
Get Into Teaching service has experienced advisers
available to give free support and advice.
