Why Train as a Computer Science Teacher?

Computer science teachers have an opportunity to empower the next generation of IT/tech stars. And for teachers interested in leadership progression, there’s plenty of scope to maximise your earning potential.

At the University of Bolton, we are offering a 2020 master’s bursary, with up to £3,000 to support your Postgraduate studies. Studying your PGCE with us also means being able to enhance your skills and open up new career opportunities in education, while getting tailored support from our course leaders.

Here are some reasons why working as a computer science teacher could be for you.

Computer science teachers are in demand

Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) teachers are in demand for secondary and higher education, making it a candidate’s market. If you train to become a teacher of computing, there will be many job opportunities once you graduate.

Digital skills are essential in the workplace

By helping young people improve their digital skills, you will be preparing them for the future. It doesn’t matter whether they move into computing or another career path, IT skills are essential in every business, organisation or workplace.

Inspire the next generation of technology stars

Working as a computer science teacher offers so much job satisfaction. You could be inspiring the next generation of innovators and technology billionaires, and you can engage with students of all backgrounds and abilities.

Does this sound like the career for you? Our PGCE in Computing provides you with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), so you can begin your teaching journey in secondary education. To find out more, head over to our PGCE M (Secondary) Computing with QTS course page.

At the University of Bolton, we always put you first. Not only are we offering a fantastic master’s bursary, but we pride ourselves in offering an unparalleled student experience, with teaching quality at the core of our approach.

Not only have we been voted No.1 in the North West for Student Satisfaction for the past three years (Complete University Guide in 2021, 2020 and 2019), but we rank in the Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide in 2021 and 2020).

We also have an award-winning student services team, so you’ll have all the support you need during your time on-campus.
