School Experience

  • Spending time in a classroom is the ideal way to strengthen your application for teacher training.
  • School experience gives you the chance to watch lessons and see for yourself what it is really like to be a teacher – and allows you to draw on your own examples in your application and interview.
  • At South Craven we offer you the chance to experience what it is like to be in a classroom.
  • If you are thinking of going into teaching and would like an opportunity to be in school then please contact Karen Higson directly at k.higson@southcraven.org or call 01535 639748.
