Are you considering a return to teaching? The University of South Wales is one of just a few universities to provide the Further Professional Development for Returning and Supply Teachers course, which meets the requirements for teachers who have been out of the profession for five years or more.

The Further Professional Development for Returning and Supply Teachers course is for qualified teachers who need to update their existing teaching qualification. It will prepare you for a return to teaching in a primary school, or for a move from secondary to primary school teaching. What's more, if you're in regular supply work and looking to obtain a long-term or permanent teaching appointment, the Further Professional Development for Returning and Supply Teachers qualification may also be beneficial.

This is not a conversion course, but is designed to further your professional development, and help with new opportunities. It will give you the confidence to apply for teaching posts with the knowledge that you can speak with recent and relevant experience.
