We set up TEA after 25 years of training people of all ages and backgrounds to learn to teach. We wanted to make it cheaper, easier and quicker for people to start teaching in the post-compulsory sector, without having to do a traditional PGCE or Cert Ed.

We know from our own experiences the challenges you face in building a teaching business. That’s why our courses include entrepreneurial skills and support. Most importantly with TEA, you are never alone.
We are a community of people just like you.  


‘I set up TEA to help people like me. I know what it’s like to start out from scratch. I want to support as many people as I can to find the same fulfilment and joy in their teaching career as I have.’


Feeling inspired? We’d love to help you take the plunge! People come to us at all stages of their teaching journey. Get in touch today to find out how we can get you started.

BE PART OF the community

 We know it can be hard teaching on your own, without a staffroom of colleagues to share things with. That’s why we set up the online TEA Staffroom – a hub for likeminded people to swap stories, ideas, tips and high-fives. Head to the TEA Facebook page to meet and chat with other members, ask for advice, or post questions and opportunities. We also hold member meet-ups around the country. So one way or another, we are putting the ‘TEA’ into ‘community’!
