School Experience Programme (SEP)

Spending time in a classroom is an essential┬ápart of deciding to train to teach and will┬ástrengthen your application for teacher training. School experience gives you the chance to watch lessons and see for yourself what it’s really like to be a teacher, and allows you to draw on your own examples in your application and interview.

The School Experience Programme (SEP) is run by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) and offers places to those wishing to commence initial teacher training (ITT). Follow this link to register your interest with the Teaching Agency, who will contact local schools on your behalf: https://getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/getting-school-experience
