Our School Experience Programme

We offer a comprehensive School Experience Programme designed to give you a flavour of what life is like in a school. This is tailored to your needs and can last from one to three days. These take place at 3 points in the school year: October, January and March. All applicants have the opportunity to request:

  • To observe lessons
  • To have a small participation in teaching lessons (with support)
  • A question & answer session with a teacher about teaching as a career
  • Discussion / guidance with regards to lesson planning
  • Further information regarding School Direct teacher training

If you wish to visit Tapton for some experience in a secondary school please register or log in at Get into Teaching and find us from the list.
