About the programme

The School Experience Programme offers you the chance to observe teaching and pastoral work, and the opportunity to talk to teachers about day-to-day life in a school.

You should get the chance to see a range of different lessons and age groups being taught – but if you have any specific requests, you can talk to usl about accommodating these. For instance, if you already have experience of observing lessons with younger secondary students, you might want to focus more on lessons with an older age group.

While your experience will focus on observation, we may be able to give you the chance to plan and deliver part or all of a lesson, depending on how many days you spend with us and whether you are making an application to us. Your time in a school might also include the opportunity to meet or shadow a member of senior leadership if that is of interest to you.

The School Experience Programme is for you if:


  • You want to gain an insight into teaching and to find out if it is for you

  • You want to gain observational experience prior to interview

  • You need to build your experience  to 10 days having been offered a place on our programme
