What is Forces into Teaching?
Forces into Teaching is part of our Teach UK Programme. An accredited teacher training program that provides you with the knowledge, skills, and practical experience you need to become a fully qualified teacher within either a secondary school or college environment. Our course is designed for individuals who are new to teaching and have little or no experience in the classroom, as well as those who have been working as unqualified teachers and want to formalise their training.
Our program combines theoretical learning with practical classroom experience, giving you a comprehensive understanding of the teaching profession and enabling you to develop your own teaching style. You will be guided by experienced teacher trainers who are dedicated to helping you succeed and achieve your goals.

Martin Reid, the Society for Education and Training's Director, said:
We believe that trainee teachers at Essential Teaching UK will enjoy the ongoing support of their peer group as they go on to undertake QTLS with the Society for Education and Training. With many candidates already applying for QTLS immediately after they have qualified, we believe that continuity will prove an appealing prospect.
The Forces into Teaching programme is structured in two stages:
Stage One: Theoretical Learning
During the first stage of the program, you will study the theoretical aspects of teaching, including:
- Role and responsibilities of a teacher
- Classroom management and behaviour
- The principles of teaching and learning
- Professionalism and ethics
- Using and developing resources
- Special educational needs and inclusion
- Teaching in a specialist environment
Stage Two: School-based Experience
Assessment is ongoing throughout the program and includes written assignments, lesson observations, and self-reflection. You will also be required to complete an online portfolio of evidence demonstrating your understanding and application of the theoretical aspects of teaching and your practical experience in the classroom.
