Train as an RE Teacher! University of Greenwich

This is the time of year when many of you are deciding your next life move.  Some of you may not yet have found a job that ticks all their boxes – so it might be worth considering a job in teaching RE! 
The Government has reintroduced training bursaries this year – up to £9,000 for individuals with a first or a PhD - and are hoping to increase awareness of this and help reverse the drop in numbers of people advancing to study for a PGCE as an RE specialist.
You don't need to have a theology degree.  And while subject requirements do vary according to the PGCE course provider, graduates may still be able to train as an RE teacher and qualify for a bursary if their subject is one of the following: 
*Cultural Studies 
*Social Policy 
There are also a number of development courses available to boost subject knowledge, including the online booster course at TEACH:RE
