Getting school experience

Getting school experience

Getting some classroom experience can help you to decide whether teaching is right for you - it could also strengthen your application. Get a taste of school life with our Get School Experience service. There are hundreds of schools across the country participating, so you should be able to find an opportunity local to you.

During your placement, you’ll usually 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
