The Thomas Aveling School
About our school experience
The school experience is a whole day opportunity for anyone who is interested in becoming a teacher to observe/ participate in lessons of your chosen subject. The purpose of the day is to give you a real insight as to the life of the teacher. You will be given a set of observation tasks which are then discussed with the school's Professional Teacher-Training Tutor in the afternoon. We will talk about what you have seen and what you have learnt from the experience. Hopefully, the attendee will be able to use the experience to support their personal statement for an application to a teacher training course.
We do not expect attendees to undergo a DBS nor do we charge a fee for the visit. We look forward to seeing you soon.
