Aspiring Teachers 2024

3rd June to 21st June
Are you interested in teaching? This opportunity supports talented Manchester Met students from all disciplines to transition towards a PGCE at Man Met and a career in Teaching.
This activity is brought to you in partnership with the Careers Service and Rise

Please note, this opportunity is only open to current undergraduate students. Please do not apply if you are not an undergraduate student.

This programme supports talented Man Met students – from any discipline or subject – to transition into a career in Teaching. Through the programme you will gain:

  • Careers Insights into Teaching, and ways you can advantage yourself in the PGCE application and interview process
  • Relevant Skills with a training programme related to planning for and supporting learning, and an understanding of how these are applied by practicing teachers and PGCE tutors.
  • Practical Experience with a school placement. 


The programme will combine on-campus sessions, self-study and placement work as set out in the schedule. On completing the course, you will receive 250 points – with the opportunity to earn a further 160 with the recommended self-study kits.

Completing this programme will help support your application to PGCE and you will be able to demonstrate a full understanding of the role and skills required to be successful in these professions.

*Please be aware you will need to complete a DBS clearance check to take part in the placement element of this programme, this will be completed after the advertisement is closed & will be paid for by the programme – however you will need to provide documentation for this.

This activity is a Man Met Rise Career Incubator: Whilst conventional graduate schemes start when you finish University and secure a job, through Man Met Rise we make this kind of experience and training available to you before you leave us. We want to give you every advantage in accelerating your career towards your goal. Priority will be given to those that have engaged with the programme and attained their Silver or Bronze Educator Badge.
