• Part time on a regular basis, eg. one day per week for several weeks

• Whole weeks

• Experience in different partner schools – academies, maintained schools, single sex schools, selective and non-selective schools make up our partnership 

What people have said…

“It has been superbly informative and insightful”

“It has clarified what being a trainee teacher is like and helped me to get a feel for what would be involved in training to teach, including ideas on teaching techniques”

“Being in a classroom environment has affirmed that teaching is a career path I wish to follow and the workshops and presentations have shown me how to best manage the application process”
