West Thames College is pleased to announce a partnership with Taking Teaching Further (TTF) to provide an exciting new support programme for those wishing to retrain as teachers in the Further Education (FE) sector.

At West Thames College, staff are well supported within a culture of continuous professional development and are encouraged to take on new and more senior roles within the college. Facilities across our campuses in Isleworth and Feltham are state-of-the art with good public transport links and free staff parking.

TTF funding enables West Thames College to recruit and provide early career support to those with the relevant knowledge and industry experience to retrain as FE teachers.

This funding is available across the 15 technical routes shown below which are the core skills that underpin good technical education (English and maths) and for recruits who will provide support to students with special educational needs and disabilities.
Taking Teaching Further 2023

TTF is a two-year programme and funding is provided to cover the cost of recruits undertaking a teaching qualification, the provider to deliver mentoring support, and to allow the recruits to have a reduced timetable by covering the costs of backfilling.

For TTF 2023, the Government is piloting a financial incentive for recruits, which is available in addition to the TTF support offer, for TTF recruits who are recruited to teach in some of the most hard-to-fill subjects (digital; construction and the built environment; engineering and manufacturing; and maths). Eligible recruits will receive a £6,000 incentive payment: £3,000 at the end of year one of the programme and £3,000 at the end of year two of the programme.
