Spokesperson for the Get Into Teaching campaign and a National Leader of Education, Roger Pope, said: “It’s a wonderful feeling knowing every lesson shapes a life. As well as the immense satisfaction of witnessing students learn and knowing you are influencing the next generation, teaching enables you to tap into your talents and passion for your subject.

“It also offers some very competitive financial rewards and long-term prospects. Anyone who feels they have the passion and potential to teach should come along to this event in Preston.”

Applications for teacher training, starting in September 2020, are now open.
