Gaining classroom experience before starting your Initial Teaching Training (ITT) is essential, without it how do you know teaching is for you?
During your placement you’ll have the opportunity to:
- talk to teachers about day-to-day school life
- observe teaching and pastoral work
- watch a range of lessons and age groups being taught
All of this will give you valuable insight and a great focus point for your application and interviews. As part of your placement, a Disclosure and Barring Service check may be required and your visiting school will discuss this with you.
If we offer you a training place then you will complete some ‘keeping in touch’ days in your host school before you start in September. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want advice and guidance when arranging your school experience.
