Where the STEM jobs are
Gradcracker works here's the proof
One of the best ways to find out if a career in teaching is the right choice for you, is to spend time in a classroom. This will give you the opportunity to speak with experienced teachers, schools’ staff and pupils, observe teaching and pastoral work and watch a range of lessons and age groups being taught. In turn, completing the programme could strengthen your application and provide you with a great focus point to draw upon for potential interviews.
There are currently hundreds of schools throughout the country participating in the programme, so there should be a local opportunity available.

Don’t hold back from applying for teacher training in biology, geography, maths, physics, chemistry, english, computing, design and technology, or a language because of your subject knowledge confidence. You may be able to build your knowledge through a Subject Enhancement course.
You may consider completing a SKE course because:
SKE courses usually take between 8 weeks to 28 weeks dependent on your current subject knowledge. You could also get a tax-free SKE bursary of £200 per week to support you throughout the course. Depending on the course length, in total you could receive a bursary of £5,600 for a 28-week course or £2,400 for a shorter course of 12 weeks.
SKE courses are available all over England at universities, schools, or with other organisations. They can be completed before, or alongside your teacher training and are available to study full-time or part-time, classroom-based or on-line.
