Leicester & Leicestershire SCITT/School Direct open event

12 January 2019 at 10:00 to 12 January 2019 at 12:00 in Leicester at the Christ the King Catholic Primary Voluntary Academy (Infant Site)

Event info:

This event offers friendly, personalised advice from experts in our `Outstanding' SCITT and School Direct programmes to support all those interested in Primary Initial Teacher Training.

All our trainee teachers are also full members of the University of Leicester, gaining a masters level PGCE from the University, with full access to the library, student support and sporting facilities.

The event will consist of stand meeting with our School Direct partners who will outline all the different routes available to candidates. Information, support and advice about the application and interview processes will be a key part of the event, with plenty of opportunities for delegates to ask personalised questions.

We will also be offering advice on how to apply via UCAS and what kind of things to consider for your personal statement. We can also talk to you about how to use classroom experience to set you up to reflect more deeply on your experiences in schools, whether you are a university student, learning support assistant or career changer. It is ideal for anyone interested in teaching, and perfect preparation for future teacher training/PGCE interviews.

Suitable candidates may be offered opportunities to gain pre-interview/course experience in SCITT or School Direct alliance partner schools.

Book now to change pupils' lives and take your next step in the exciting and fulfilling lifelong learning journey that is teaching.
