Our courses lead you smoothly into your first teaching job

When you’ve decided you want to get into teaching, you’ll want your course to lead you smoothly into this fulfilling, rewarding career.

At Worcester, we have excellent contacts with the schools in the region where you’ll do your placements. They also keep us up to date with vacancies, so not surprisingly, our graduates are incredibly successful at finding their first job.

I got so much from the course, but the biggest thing has been confidence. My whole family think I'm just a different person - it’s been brilliant.
