School Experience Programme
Gaining classroom experience before starting your Initial Teacher Training (ITT) e.g. School Direct can help you be sure that a career in teaching is right for you. It can also support your application for ITT.
The School Experience Programme (SEP) offers classroom experience in a secondary school. The duration is flexible (1 to 10 days); this will be agreed between you and your host school. For further information about this please visit this link. Painsley Catholic College offers days on this portal.
Additionally, Painsley Catholic College Teaching School Alliance offers ‘Look at Teaching’ events, where you can spend the day meeting staff and our recently qualified teachers, as well as observe lessons. To find out more, please email JOB@painsley.staffs.sch.uk or ring 01538 714944 and ask for Joanne Brereton, Teaching School Administrator. These days include a support brochure to help you get into teaching and buffet lunch. Each event is also supported by our University Partners. The cost per person is £30.
