Troops to Teachers

Troops to Teachers (TtT) is a prestigious national programme that is targeted at service leavers who have the potential to become outstanding teachers.

It is a two‐year, employment‐based ‘advanced standing’ programme leading to an honours degree with QTS. It integrates initial teacher training with continuing professional development (known as additional, personalised training). 

Led by the University of Brighton in partnership with Academies Enterprise Trust, the TtT programme will be delivered through a consortium of universities and our lead delivery schools. The programme operates right across England with specialist pathways for those who wish to teach a specialist subject in secondary schools and those who want to teach in primary schools.

Trainee teachers who are enrolled on the TtT programme will:

  • spend two years in their delivery school
  • undertake a range of employment‐based activities, Monday through to Thursday each week
  • engage in degree-level scheduled learning activities on ‘Study Fridays’
  • participate in intensive residential study weeks
  • be employed by the delivery school as an unqualified teacher at a minimum of 80 per cent (Monday to Thursday) of the starting salary for unqualified teachers (currently £12,908.80 with additional allowances for London and London fringes).
