Get More Teacher Training Experience

What is the School Experience Programme?

School experience is essential if you’re interested in becoming a teacher. Before you apply for your training, you’ll need to gain as much experience in the classroom as possible in order to strengthen your application and prepare you for potential interviews.

We may be able to help you arrange placements via our Secondary school experience programme.

For more information click here

We can also organise placements within a Primary school for anyone interested in gaining experience in this phase.

Application booster

The more experience you gain at schools the stronger your teacher training application will be.


Teaching knowledge

The programme provides a good insight into what is expected from teachers and life in a school.


Make the right choice

The School Experience allows you to explore different teaching posts and schools to find out what’s right for you.

Another option is to become a Future Teaching Scholar. Have you got what it takes?

The Future Teaching Scholars programme is an exciting new and challenging route into teaching. It is a six-year, full-time programme with three years of undergraduate study, one year in postgraduate employment-based teacher training then two further years employed as a maths or physics teacher. George Spencer Academy is pleased to have been selected as one of England’s 11 regional training centres (RTC) for this trail blazing programme. This programme is for high quality mathematicians and physicists who think they wish to become teachers. As an RTC we will run an assessment centre for the potential future teaching scholars and continue to support those that are successful for a further 6 years.

For more information or to find out how to apply, visit the Future Teaching Scholar website.

There are a limited number of spaces available on the Future Teaching Scholars Programme, so start your application now


We are proud to be recognised for our achievements.
