Career Opportunities with TLAN Teacher Training

Studying a PGCE in Teaching Learners with Additional Needs (TLAN) is a great career move if you’re passionate about inclusivity in education, and want to work with teenagers and young adults who face challenges in the classroom.

With our PGCE course, you will gain qualifications at master’s level and will have the opportunity to move straight into the workplace or transfer your credits to complete a full master’s. This is a great time to apply at the University of Bolton, as we are offering a 2020 master’s bursary with up to £3,000 to help fund your studies.

Here are some of the areas you could work in after you graduate.

Mainstream education

Schools, sixth forms and colleges are in need of TLAN teachers in order to improve inclusivity and provide fair access to learning for all. There are many young people dealing with social, behavioural or emotional struggles in mainstream education, and TLAN teachers can act as a bridge between students with additional needs and the rest of the class.

Specialist educational units

You can also go into a specialist area such as Pupil Referral Units (PRU) or jobs in traveller support. There’s usually great job satisfaction as you will get the chance to help those who are often overlooked by the school system.

Community education

Often, community learning is looked upon as a way of working, rather than a sector of education. Working with adults in this way allows you to have a bit more flexibility in your job. You could be delivering courses across a number of basic skills, and working in a range of informal settings.

The justice sector

Working in this sector requires passion for change and a desire to make a difference. By choosing a career in prisons and youth offender institutions, you will be helping people with troubled pasts integrate back into the real world, and hopefully into the workplace. This is a vital step for lowering reoffending rates in the UK, so you will be making a big contribution to the country.

To find out more about becoming a TLAN teacher, visit our PGCE M 14+ Teaching Learners with Additional Needs course page. We provide a supportive and friendly learning environment, and our mentors will work with you to discover your passions and areas of interest.

Bolton University is in the Top 5 for Teaching Quality across the whole of the UK (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide in 2021 and 2020), so a great course experience is guaranteed.
