About our school experience
The role of a teacher is highly complex one. The i2i SCITT School Experience Programme offers you the chance to find out about the roles and responsibilities of a teacher and to help you answer any questions you may have about the profession as a whole.
During your day you will have the opportunity to observe teaching and pastoral work, and to talk to teachers and students about day-to-day life in a school.
You should get the chance to see a range of different lessons and age groups being taught – but if you have any specific requests, you can talk to us about accommodating these. For instance, if you already have experience of observing lessons with younger secondary students, you might want to focus more on lessons with an older age group.
While your experience will focus on observation, we may be able to give you the chance to plan and deliver part or all of a lesson, depending on how many days you spend with us and whether you are making an application to us.
