We know that completing some school experience prior to interview or as part of your decision process can be really beneficial.
Experiencing school life and understanding the role of a teacher by immersing yourself in the classroom will strengthen your application and mean you are more prepared for the training year ahead. We are very happy to arrange experience for you, in the area of your choice.
School experience can include observing lessons, learning about the curriculum, working with small groups of students and much more. You will be able to join in with break times and extra-curricular activities, as well as talk to teachers and trainees about the Inspiring Leaders SCITT programme. We offer school experience in our Primary and Secondary schools and you can have opportunity in both Primary and Secondary if you are undecided on which you prefer.
We have primary schools across Leicester city and Leicestershire, all of which are happy to host work experience candidates. To book your experience please contact Penny email: firstname.lastname@example.org

I had such an amazing time and wish I could go in more often! I went into a year 6 class (Mr Swift) and I can't tell you what a great day I had. Completely thrown in, which highlighted knowledge gaps (which was good), and the children are awesome!
