Teaching physical education (PE) is a massively rewarding career. Not only do PE teachers help to develop students' sporting ability, but they also watch their classes grow in confidence and determination. 

"PE is more than just playing a sport, the subject helps students to grow personally and learn how to stay healthy throughout the rest of their lives." 


Now is a great time to train to teach physics. It’s becoming increasingly popular with students and as one of the core subjects of the curriculum, schools need talented physics teachers. 


If you choose to train to teach physics, you could be eligible for a generous tax-free training bursary of £24,000 or a prestigious £26,000 tax-free scholarship. Find out more information about funding here.

Tax-free funding of up to £26,000 along with additional funding via Student Finance
