Thomas Estley Community College
About our school experience
Achieve with TELA is an alliance of schools that is an accredited provider of Teacher Training in primary and secondary. The aim of school experience is to support and enhance any application for teaching training.
Initially we invite visitors to spend two days at Thomas Estley Community College which is an 11-16 secondary school.
No DBS is required for two days in school.
The days will provide you with an invaluable insight into what teaching is like through observation of lessons, meeting experienced teachers, finding out more about safeguarding, pupil progress, pastoral support and the Achieve with TELA school based teacher training programme along with the application process.
Your place on the school experience days is subject to proof a negative lateral flow COVID test.
The School experience day is charged at £20.00 per day. If you are successful in gaining a place on our School Direct programme costs can be refunded. www.telaonline.co.uk
