School Experience

School experience is important for people who are looking to become teachers. It offers an opportunity to work with children and young people within a real school environment, so you can be sure you’re making the right decision about your future. 
Teacher Taster Days

Please look at our events page for dates of Teacher Taster Days being held by Partnership Schools. These are an excellent opportunity to visit a school, seee lessons, meet serving teachers and find out about routes into teaching.

Get School Experience

You can also access school experience through the DfE’s Get School Experience scheme. You may find opportunties to spend more time in schools or to have a more individual, immersive experience than on a taster day.

Currently the following partnership schools are involved in the scheme:

Balcarras School – Cheltenham

Farmor’s School – Fairford

Pate’s Grammar School – Cheltenham

Pittville School – Cheltenham

Sir Thomas Rich’s School – Gloucester

Stroud High School – Stroud

The Crypt School – Gloucester

Informal Experience

Many of our Partnership schools will offer informal experiences if you contact them direct. If you would like support organising visits to other schools in Gloucestershire, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to facilitate this.
