If you're feeling disillusioned in your current job and feel you want to be doing something more rewarding, teaching is a brilliant option.

You can bring all the expertise, work skills and life skills from what you've been doing into a new and refreshing situation.

And go home each day knowing you've made a difference.

You could get a £26,000 tax-free bursary while you train to teach selected subjects - all subject to eligibility. The figure is £30,000 for maths teachers (a £20,000 tax-free bursary while you train as a teacher and a further £10,000 after tax once in teaching).

New teachers start on a minimum of £22,000 to £28,000, depending on location.
