How does mentoring work on a teacher training course?

The mentor-mentee relationship is a key part of our teacher training programme. But how does it work in practice?


Teaching geography: “You have the opportunity to blow their minds”

Geography trainee Alice is passionate about her subject. Now that her training year is drawing to a close, she reflects on the best features of her new career and why you should join her in training to teach geography.


Training to teach during a pandemic

When our trainee teachers started in September, they had no idea that they would have to adapt to a whole new way of working halfway through their training year. As well as learning and refining their teaching techniques, they’re now also adjusting to working from home and tuning into training webinars online. So how are they getting on? We caught up with fellow Maths trainees, Momina and Tamara from Walthamstow Academy, and primary trainee Emily from Langford Primary, to see how their working lives have changed.


Training to be a science teacher

Teaching science is an incredibly rewarding and essential job. Our students need enthusiastic science teachers to inspire their curiosity in the world around them – from the intricate structure of leaf cells under a microscope to the gargantuan 'elephant's toothpaste' reaction and the immeasurable wonder of black holes. The lessons you teach could fire the imaginations of hundreds of young people, influencing the theories, experiments and technology of tomorrow. We spoke to three United Teaching science trainees past and present to tell us more about the rewards of teaching science.
