Education is a career path with global opportunities. This means the demand for qualified teachers is also increasing, as the UK is set to require around 230,000 more teachers over the next decade.
As part of our positive and supportive learning environment at the University of Bolton, we are committed to helping students gain the skills they need to make a difference to future generations. Our education courses have been voted first for Student Satisfaction*, so if you’re looking to train as a teacher, we can help support your career ambitions.
We hold regular teacher training events throughout the academic year for trainee teachers and educators. Let’s explore some of our upcoming events…
InSPIRE Symposium - 30 March 2023
Are you a trainee teacher or educator?
InSPIRE is an online journal about teaching and learning for trainee teachers and educators in the further education and skills sector. It aims to provide a platform for teachers to share their research, experiences, reflections, and placement practices that they have learnt after the first two years of their teacher training completion.
InSPIRE’s contributors are among some of the leading thinkers in the further education and skills sector. This means that by collaborating with tutors, InSPIRE offers a platform to share, enhance, and support peers across the education sector.
If you’re a current education student or trainee teacher and wonder what makes great teaching and learning, then register your place on Bolton University’s InSPIRE Symposium event on Thursday 30 March 2023 from 5:30pm.
