Ex-Military Recruited For Teaching Careers

From the Parade Ground to the playground, square bashing to square roots, the Government is trying to get former soldiers sailors, airmen and women and marines fast-tracked into the teaching profession.

The idea - pioneered in the US - is aimed at capitalising on the skills and values learned in the military and transferring them into the classroom.

The scheme being launched in the UK later is called Troops to Teachers and the real beneficiaries, according to the Department for Education, will be those ex-servicemen and women who do not already have a university education.
