What impact will the Future Teaching Scholars programme have on my degree?

The Future Teaching Scholars programme is demanding, and you will need to be organised and committed to succeed. At times you will need to manage attendance and preparation for teaching-related activities and events alongside your degree. National events will mainly take place outside of term time and the activities at Regional or Local Centres are unlikely to be in blocks of more than three days at a time. You will need to maintain your interest in teaching-related current affairs, school-based activities and be an active ambassador for teaching and your subject. That said, these are all activities that will supplement your degree, and are designed to ensure you become one of the very best teachers with a strong career.
