The Tees Valley Teaching Academy

The Teaching Training Academy at Middlesbrough College offers a range of high quality courses leading to primary, secondary and post 16 teaching roles as well as supporting you if you are a teacher who wishes to develop your skills and gain further qualifications. 

Shortage of teachers

With a rise in the number of pupils attending school, teacher shortages are growing, particularly at secondary level.  As a result of this, many students are now educated by non-specialist teachers, with a significant lack in a number of academic areas.

This national shortage highlights the overall demand for teachers in the United Kingdom, predominately in disadvantages areas of the country, male tutors in primary schools and those specialising in maths, English and science.

Providing career opportunities

There are many exciting and diverse career opportunities within the education and training sector. As a teacher you have the opportunity to make a real difference in people’s lives whilst sharing knowledge of a subject area you are passionate about, making it a profession that is well worth considering.

Not only that with an average starting salary of anywhere between £22,244 and £27,819 for those working in inner London, teachers can expect to progress onto an annual wage of up to £35,000.

They encompass teaching and training in primary and secondary schools, further education, adult education, work based learning, the voluntary sector, offender learning and specialist providers who work with SEND (specialist educational needs and disabilities) learners.  There are also a significant number of roles in supporting teaching and learning in schools and colleges
