Forthcoming Taster Days at our partner primary and secondary schools

Teach SouthEast is planning to hold Taster Days throughout the year. Taster Days will run from 8.30 until 13.00 and will include the following:

  • A presentation covering the different routes into Initial Teacher Training (ITT), what Teach SouthEast offers and how we differ from other providers followed by a question and answer session
  • A presentation on how to prepare for an interview lesson
  • A tour of the school (either a primary or secondary school, depending on the phase you are interested in teaching), where you will be taken into classrooms to see lessons underway. For many people this is the first time they have been in a classroom since they left school andit is a good starting point to see if teaching is the right career
  • The chance to observe 2 lessons (which will be very valuable both when completing your UCAS application and for preparing for interview).

We will be running Taster Days on the following dates and times (please page down for our primary school Taster Days)

Taster Days

Prior to the escalation of the coronavirus, we were offering Taster Days with the following elements:

  • A presentation covering the different routes into Initial Teacher Training (ITT), what Teach SouthEast offers and how we differ from other providers followed by a question and answer session
  • A presentation on how to prepare for an interview lesson
  • A tour of the school where you will be taken into classrooms to see lessons underway. For many people this is the first time they have been in a classroom since they left school and is a good starting point to see if teaching is the right career
  • The chance to observe 2 lessons (which will be very valuable both when completing your UCAS application and for preparing for interview).

Clearly now that schools are closed, these Taster Days can no longer go forward in their current format. However, we have uploaded narrated versions of the 2 presentations on our Teach SouthEast Facebook group. If you would like to access these presentations and marketing flyers, please follow the link provided and follow the instructions to join the Teach SouthEast private Facebook group. If you have any questions afterwards, please feel free to email Claire Brown on c.brown@sjb.surrey.sch.uk (with particular regard to secondary school ITT) or Sam Robinson on s.robinson@sjb.surrey.sch.uk with regard to primary ITT.

The link to our Facebook group is: https://www.facebook.com/groups/226130585241034/?source_id=1516027645302229

These presentations are available to view immediately.

Alternatively, if you email Claire Brown on c.brown@sjb.surrey.sch.uk you will be sent a link to watch these in YouTube.
