School Experience

Not sure if teaching is for you? Want to strengthen an application? Visit one of our partner schools for the day and find out first-hand what a day in a school entails!

As an important support to the process of applying to train to teach we recommend that you gain real life experience of teaching either before, during or after your application.

School Experience can help you decide whether a teacher training course is for you. School experience is preferred and can be invaluable at the application stage.

Whilst there is no minimum number of days experience that you require to apply to us, we do highly recommend that you gain experience in a school prior to applying.

View our upcoming School Experience Days below and then call or email us today to organise your own experience day.
