Teacher Training School Experience Days

Many training programmes require applicants to have some classroom experience before they are accepted onto a PGCE training course.  Northgate High School offers an opportunity to observe lessons for a day in order to get a taste of life as a teacher with our School Experience Programme.

During your day with us you will have the opportunity to:

  •  Observe teaching in a specialist subject
  • Talk to teachers about day-to-day school life
  • Talk to our experienced Professional Development Tutor about routes into teaching
  • Watch a range of lessons and age groups being taught
  • Meet other potential trainees

If you are interested in attending one of our School Experience Days, please sign up with the Suffolk and Norfolk SCITT training programme by clicking the link https://www.suffolkandnorfolkscitt.co.uk/partnership.  

Please note that people considering all training routes are very welcome to sign up through this form, not just those applying through SCITT. There is absolutely no obligation or commitment to train to teach by signing up in this way.

You will then be contacted with full details closer to the time by Miss Mary Hallett, Professional Development Tutor, who coordinates the programme.
