School Experience Programme

One of the best ways to find out whether a career in teaching is right for you is to spend some time in a classroom and speak to experienced teachers and school staff. 

  • The School Experience Programme (SEP) has been developed to allow you to gain classroom experience in secondary schools.
  • The duration is flexible (1 to 10 days); this will be agreed between you and your host school.
  • A Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS- formally CRB) may be required. This will be organised by the school and could impact the length of your placement.
