Work Experience in Schools
If you are looking to pursue a career in teaching it is vital that you get into schools and experience what life as a teacher is really like. Often we make judgements about teaching based on our own experience as life as a student, but it can be very different seeing things from the other side of the classroom.
This programme is available to potential applicants. You will be able to spend a day in one of our schools prior to applying for an ITT course. You will be given the opportunity to observe and engage in lessons.
To arrange school experience, for either Primary or Secondary, visit http://www.education.gov.uk/get-into-teaching/school-experience/sep.
Please note you will need to search under Secondary General as opposed to an individual subject.
OUTLINE OF DAY:
Time in department to experience specific subject area
Opportunities to meet with current School Direct trainees
Review with School Lead at the end of the day to discuss future plans
At the end of each day you will receive a certificate of attendance to use as evidence when applying for ITT courses.
