School Experience Programme and Teacher Taster Days

Trainees will also need 10 days of school experience in a School setting. We can arrange placements for you in one of our 20 partner primary schools. Dates can be flexible, as a placement doesn't have to be completed in one block, and programmes can be designed to suit an individuals needs and availability.

We also offer Teacher Taster Days so you can get a quick insight into the profession and to help you decide whether to pursue a school experience programme.
