Students and parents

Are you a student who enjoys helping your peers? Do you have a real passion for your subjects, and an interest in education?


Then Tomorrow’s Teachers is made for you.

Tomorrow’s Teachers is a programme designed to introduce you to a potential career in teaching, and to give you all the practical experience you need to excel on the other side of the classroom.


It’s just 12 hours of course-time to be spread over a year, and will be delivered by teachers at your school. It also consists of practical work experience which you’ll undertake while at university. Together these will provide a real understanding of what it’s like to be a teacher and will show you a real pathway to a rewarding and valued career.



As you near graduation from University, the Tomorrow’s Teachers network will also help you choose the right course to gain qualified teacher status and will even support you in finding your first teaching job.

How it works


A one-year course, to be delivered at participating schools:

The course has six parts, each containing two teaching topics. It will be taught to you in just 12 hours so you may also have work to do outside the classroom to get the full benefit of the experience.

Topics include:

  • How you plan a great lesson

  • How you make a lesson memorable

  • What it’s like to take charge of your own classroom

  • How you grow your teaching CV


When you have successfully completed the course, you'll receive a certificate and a ‘Tomorrow’s Teachers Tes Course Accreditation’.


Tailored work experience opportunities once you have left school:

  • Return visits back to your school, or other schools in the local area, to complete work experience opportunities during your university holidays  

When you graduate, we’ll also be there to support you choosing the right course to gain qualified teacher status, and even help you to find the right first teaching job for you.
