About our school experience

Find out what teaching is like by spending a day or more in classes observing experienced teachers in your subject area and assisting in the lesson where possible. You will meet current trainee teachers and other staff and have the opportunity to discuss your training options. The day runs from 8.45 until 3.15. DBS clearance is not necessary for initial school experience but you will need to bring along photographic evidence to confirm your identity (eg passport, driving licence)
