Teach Portsmouth return with a webinar aimed at those working in industry and considering a switch to the profession. The webinar, Teach Portsmouth presents: changing career to teaching, will take place on Wednesday 27 January from 4pm – 5pm.
With teacher training applications up by a third since the start of the pandemic and continued uncertainty in the economy, teaching can provide a secure and rewarding career for the right person.
Two teachers from a Portsmouth school and college will discuss their transition from industry into the profession, offering a realistic view by sharing their experiences.
Councillor Suzy Horton, Cabinet Member for Children, Families and Education at Portsmouth City Council welcomed the webinar’s return: “After hosting the first webinar back in November, I’m pleased to see the series return with changing career to teaching.
“During times of uncertainty, jobs in teaching provide stability for many people. While we recognise there is a shortage of teachers in some subject areas, it is important we recruit the right type of person. The profession is extremely rewarding but also offers its fair share of challenges. The webinar will provide those considering their options the chance to learn from people who have made the move themselves.”
