Bolton-based graduates – want to reskill and retrain as a teacher?
The University of Bolton is offering a Master of Education course for Professional Development in Education for ambitious and passionate young people looking to reskill for better career opportunities. Sounds like something you might be interested in? They offer teaching undergraduate courses, too.
Have you thought about an Apprenticeship?
An Apprenticeship is a great way to get paid for getting trained. You’ll build new skills and work experience in real-life work situations, and when you complete your Apprenticeship you’ll come out of it with a qualification, too.
Many Apprenticeships just need you to have GCSEs or the equivalent in general subjects like English, Science and Maths.
If you’re not sure what you want to do yet – or you’ve left school and want to head in a new direction with your career – an Apprenticeship could be a perfect option for you.
