Did Now Teach or our co-founder Lucy Kellaway inform your decision to become a teacher? Have you secured a training place on your own? You can still join us.
Make sure you go into school well-prepared: read our essential guide to changing career to teaching.
It's 16 pages of insight based on supporting over 400 career changers.
As a charity helping people change career to become teachers, we created 'Prepare for Takeoff' to share what we've learned with other career changers.
You may have seen one of our articles in the press, have followed Lucy Kellaway’s story, or heard about Now Teach from a training provider. You might have even talked to one of our advisers.
If you’ve already found a training placement, you can still join our Network of career changers and access our career-change support.
Our Career Change Programme is designed to make sure your new career gets off to a great start by offering you personalised support and a network of peers.
There's no additional work or requirements - we are here when you need us.
"Meeting other Now Teachers leaves you invigorated as you realise everyone’s dealing with some sort of challenge and we all swap experiences. I’ve made some good friends."

A Network for the long-term
If you join us, the Network of career changers will be your biggest support, providing insight and fellowship. We organise regular opportunities for you to share and connect with the rest of your cohort, providing time to reflect outside of your school and training provider.
Personalised support and development
We provide 1-1 support and events, complementing your Initial Teacher Training. Over the two years of the Career Change Programme, you will have a dedicated Programme Manager for 1-1 input, regular development events and access to coaches to help make your transition into teaching a success.

We may already be working with your training provider; if not, we will get in touch once you've joined to ensure that they and your school know you are part of the Now Teach Network.
