University of Reading to host major new Train to Teach event for Department for Education (DfE)

On 2 November from 4.30 to 8pm, the Institute of Education at Reading will host a free Train to Teach Roadshow in conjunction with the DfE and the National College of Teaching and Leadership (NCTL). The roadshow is set to provide a wealth of information on how to get into teaching and how to apply for training courses

David Kerr, Reading’s Head of Initial Teacher Training (ITT) said:

Events like this boost recruitment of future teachers for schools across the Thames Valley and wider area at a time of challenging recruitment for local schools. This is a golden opportunity for those interested in teaching to meet all local training providers, including the leading teacher training institute in the area: the Institute of Education at Reading. We are ranked third in the UK for teacher training by the Guardian rankings 2018.”

Don’t miss your opportunity to find out more. Drop in at any time during the event at our London Road campus, allowing at least two hours to:
