We offer the opportunity to observe a range of teaching styles, as well as talking to key professionals about routes into teaching.

The Benefits of SEP

Dr Samantha Bullock – A Case Study

“I thoroughly enjoyed experiencing science lessons which consisted of pupils of mixed ages and abilities. This provided me with an invaluable insight into what teaching really is all about. Each and every one of these experiences came together to cement my passion to become a teacher. During my visits I met with many experienced professionals who explained to me what teaching involves on a day to day basis.

I was also able to liaise with trainees who were on the programme at the time, and they gave me an idea of what I could expect in my training year. I have been very fortunate since leaving the programme to secure employment as a Teacher of Science at The Ruth Gorse Academy.

I highly recommend accessing the School Experience Programme and contacting GORSE SCITT directly in order to find out what teaching is like and how to make a strong application.”
