School Experience Programme

Find out how you can get up to 10 days experience in our school as part of your preparation for applying to train to become a teacher, as well as free access to an adviser.

Subject Knowledge Enhancement

Don’t hold back from applying for teacher training in maths, physics, chemistry, computing, design and technology or a language because of a lack of confidence in the level of your subject knowledge. You may still be able to train to teach these subjects (and be eligible for the bursaries they attract) by building up or refreshing your existing knowledge with a free Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) programme. Currently we offer SKE in science.
