School Experience

How much school experience is required?

For all School Direct Salaried applicants it is recommended that you have a minimum of 3 years work experience (this does not have to have been in an educational setting).

Although school experience is not a requirement to get onto an ITT course, we do however strongly recommend that you gain some school experience so that you fully understand the role of a teacher.


How can you gain school experience?

Should you wish to gain school experience you can contact Primary and Secondary schools requesting the opportunity to visit the school and observe lessons. 

Alternatively you can complete the form below requesting school experience (please follow the link below) and we will endeavour to arrange some school experience for you.
