Sir Christopher Hatton Academy has a proven track record in providing outstanding teacher training.
If you’re considering returning to teaching, or you’re qualified to teach but never taught in a state school, the transition may be easier than you expect. Whether you left to bring up a family or explore a different career, there’s lots of support available to help you become one of the thousands of teachers each year who come back to a profession where you can make a real difference every day.
Sir Christopher Hatton Academy’s Lead Physics Practitioner, Dr Abigail Bell returned to teaching after a career break with her children. She explains how the supportive return to teaching programme enabled her to successfully return to teaching and how her career has flourished ever since.
Inspire is a collaborative partner Teaching School and offers a return to teaching course. It is aimed at teachers who have been out of the classroom and wish to return to teaching. This course is designed to give you the knowledge and confidence to re-enter the profession and is delivered by National College facilitators with great experience in training teachers and students.
Some 8-10,000 former teachers return to teaching every year. Whether you have taken time out to raise a family or want to return to teaching after a career change you have a wealth of valuable skills and experiences to offer pupils and schools.
There are no longer any government restrictions or teacher training requirements for returners to the classroom. In some ways this is good news as it gives teachers more flexibility, however it’s important to remember that there will have been changes to the curriculum and the way that schools are ran. Jumping in at the deep end is not advised.
