Engineers into teaching

Use your engineering degree and practical perspective to inspire the next generation of engineers and physicists.

Each year, many engineering graduates and professionals go into teaching. You could make the transition into a diverse, dynamic and hands-on career too.

In return for playing a vital role in the future of physics and engineering, you will be rewarded with: 

  • Tax-free training funding of up to £30,000 during your teacher training year
  • A competitive salary
  • Substantial holidays
  • Career progression opportunities
  • Ongoing IOP support

We are sure your physics teacher played an integral role in getting you where you are today. Now it’s your chance to do the same for future generations.
