Getting School Experience

There is no requirement to have previous school experience, however many applicants wish to gain some insight into teaching before starting the course. Many of our schools are happy to provide the opportunity for applicants to gain experience with them. Please contact us so that we can help you to select and make contact with an appropriate school.

Why should I get experience in a school?

  • Get a clearer idea of whether teaching is right for you
  • Develop understanding of different educational settings and contexts
  • Begin to understand school systems
  • Gather ideas and evidence for interview and application
  • Develop contacts who may be useful in your training years and beyond
