Skip to 0 minutes and 11 secondsWelcome to the course Preparing for Teaching. This course is suitable for anyone thinking of teaching as a career. The course will encourage you to think about teaching in a different way to how you may have done in the past. Allowing you to make the transition from being a learner, to being an educator yourself. I work at the Faculty of Education at Manchester Metropolitan University. Where we nurture students from all walks of life to become teachers in all sorts of different settings. We work with a huge number of education partners, including primary schools, secondary schools, colleges, and specialist settings. We know exactly the sort of things that you need to consider before applying to teacher training.

This course is supported throughout by one of our recently qualified teachers, Skeena. Skeena knows exactly what it is like to have applied and successfully completed teacher training. And in this course, she works with some of her wonderful pupils to tell us exactly what she wishes she'd know before she first started. The course is also supported by a wonderful selection of our teacher educators here at Manchester Metropolitan. They have shared some of their expert advice to help you in your development.
