School Experience

Gaining classroom experience before starting your Initial Teaching Training (ITT) is valuable, without it how do you know teaching is for you? 

During your visit 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

You can also discuss your experience in your application and at interview.

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 if you want advice and guidance when arranging your school experience.
