Gain School Experience

Thinking of Teaching, but need some school experience?

Gaining classroom experience before starting your initial teacher training (ITT) can help you be sure that a career in teaching is right for you. It can also support your application for ITT by spending some time in a classroom and speaking to experienced teachers and school staff. 

If you are applying for our School Direct programme we can offer School Experience.  We offer this across a wide range of subject areas.  The school experience day will involve:

  • Meeting the ITT Team
  • Tour of the School
  • Observation of lessons in your chosen area
  • Meet current trainees (when available)
  • Review and feedback of the day

We initially offer one days experience.  Following this further days can be discussed with us, after attending the initial day.

How to Apply

If you are interested in attending a School Experience Day please book on one of the dates via the DFE Website Get School Experience 

We currently have 2 days programmed:

  • 25th January 2022
  • 24th March 2022

Other dates will be added in due course.  Please note that if circumstances change in relation to Covid then we may move these to a virtual experience.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact Lesley Trigger, Partnership Manager on training@trainteachleadpartnership.co.uk
