School Experience Programme


Get a taste of school life with our School Experience Programme (SEP). Come and see for yourself

why teaching is one of the most rewarding and exciting careers in existence! 


During your placement, you’ll 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
  • meet a fantastic group of children!


All of this will give you valuable insight and a great focus point as you explore teaching as a career option. It will provide with relevant experience that you can refer to in applications and interviews.


All participants in the SEP will receive a certificate and will have the opportunity to discuss routes into teaching with our School Direct programme leaders.  


The SEP is, initially, a one-day experience. Any further days will be negotiated with individuals at the end of the placement day.
