Leicester & Leicestershire - SCITT/School Direct open evening

27 February 2020 at 18:00 - 20:00 in Leicester at the Dovelands Primary School

Event information:

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 evening will consist of a presentation outlining all the different routes available to candidates. Information, support and advice about the application and interview processes will be a key part of the presentation, with plenty of opportunities for all delegates to ask questions.

The presentation will be followed by an `Understanding Pupil Learning' workshop, the workshop will set you up to reflect more deeply on your experiences in schools, whether you are a University student, learning support assistant or career changer, gaining voluntary or paid experience in the classroom. It is ideal for anyone interested in teaching, and perfect preparation for future teacher training/PGCE interviews.

People are welcome to attend either the presentation or workshop or to stay for both parts of the evening.

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.
