Aberystwyth University has welcomed the news that existing financial incentives for teacher training will be extended into the 2019-20 academic year.

Commenting on the announcement, Professor Malcolm Thomas, said: "If you are a student who is graduating this year or already working and thinking of changing career, there is no better time to consider teaching as a career considering the exciting developments taking place in Wales."

"Now is the time to train for delivering the innovative new curriculum in Wales. At Aberystwyth University, we will be offering students the opportunity to teach beyond boundaries for an all-through primary and secondary experience."

From September 2019, the School of Education at Aberystwyth University will deliver a new Postgraduate Certificate in Education.

The courses will provide students with the skills to teach across both primary and secondary sectors.

Professor Thomas added: "The Welsh Government's announcement of extended financial incentives for 2019-20 entry and the recent clarification of GCSE entry requirements provide enhanced opportunities and support for students to consider training to become a teacher."
