Most courses equip you for primary teaching, but there are also some undergraduate secondary programmes. Full-time courses last three or four years. For more information, contact your local university or visit www.ucas.com.
The Teachers’ Pensions Scheme (TPS) is a contributory scheme administered by Teachers' Pensions (TP) on behalf of the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF). It is a defined benefit ‘final salary' scheme and is one of the most important and valuable benefits available to teachers. The TPS provides:
- you with a lump sum and regular income after you retire
- your family or other dependants with financial protection after you die.
The TPS is a statutory scheme subject to the Teachers' Pensions Regulations 1997 (as amended).
