About our school experience
Teach Thurrock has developed a Primary Experience Programme, which offers the chance to spend 10 days getting first-hand insight into primary school teaching. Candidates will gain experience of whole class and group teaching in a range of schools in our partnership. There will be opportunities to shadow outstanding teachers and further develop understanding of what teaching is all about.
This provides a great opportunity for eligible candidates (with a 2:2 degree or higher), who intend to start initial teacher training (ITT) in 2019/20 to find out more about the different aspects of the job and gain valuable experience ahead of applying for training.
We also offer School Experience to candidates who wish to apply for a School Direct training place on the Teach Thurrock Primary partnership for 2019/20. Please contact the school on 01708 852128 or email Andrea Parfett at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for further details.
