School Experience Days

We recommend prospective trainees attend one of our ‘School Experience days’ and we run a programme of events throughout the academic year.

The first event is being held at Backwell School on Tuesday 5th October 2021 from 9.15 am to 3.00 pm.  A full schedule of events for the 21/22 academic year will be confirmed. 

Please book by emailing admin@nsta.org.uk or by clicking here to book through the Gov.uk – Get School Experience website.  

What will you gain from your experience day:

  • Experience of a dynamic secondary school environment in the NSTA: perfect for your teacher training application.
  • A chance to meet ITT Students currently on teacher training courses: allowing you to ask key questions and gain an insight into their experiences, aims and skills learnt.
  • An opportunity to observe specialists teaching in your subject area; you will have chance to discuss what you’ve observed and understand more about creating stimulating learning environments in the modern classroom.
  • A chance to ask questions of our highly skilled mentors and key ITT staff: you can pick up top tips for your teacher training application and find out more about the training process.

There is a £25.00 non-refundable administration fee paid at the time of booking.  This will be requested by bank transfer directly by the host school.
