Rushey Mead Academy

We are able to offer flexible dates and so your experience may not be on the date listed.

Rushey Mead Academy is the lead school in The Mead Educational Trust (TMET), and is a successful academy which challenges each member of its community to excel.

We are offering experiences at Rushey Mead Academy and across the Leicestershire Secondary SCITT partnership of schools, therefore your placement may not be at Rushey Mead Academy.

About our school experience

Individual requirements:
  • Must not have been accepted onto another teacher training course
  • Must have a degree
  • Photo identification: Photo ID will be required for all delegates, even where a new DBS check is not needed.
  • Must already have eligibility to work in the UK and must be applying to start teacher training in September of the next academic year.

We have a range of partnership schools that will be able to offer school experience and if we are not able to offer time at Rushey Mead, the Leicestershire Secondary SCITT will organise an alternative venue.

On these placements, you will observe teachers in the classroom and see the realities of teaching so you understand why we love this career.
