School experience days

Getting classroom experience is a great way to help you decide whether teaching could be for you - it could also help to strengthen your application. 

School experience is vital to candidates who are looking to train to teach as ITT, SCITT and School Direct providers now ask for a minimum amount of experience of working with young people prior to application.

What will you be doing?

  • Spend the day in the department of the subject of interest

  • Observe a variety of lessons, age ranges and ability groups

  • Talk to teachers about day-to-day school life

Speak to a member of the SCITT team

During your school experience, you will have the opportunity to speak to a member of the SCITT team who will be available to answer any questions that you may have about the course.
