School experience is important if you’re interested in becoming a teacher. Before you apply for your training, it is advisable to gain as much experience in the classroom as possible in order to strengthen your application and prepare you for potential interviews.

Our school experience programme provides prospective applicants to our programme a chance to immerse themselves in a ‘day in the life of a teacher’ in one of our partner schools. You will be given a schedule for the day and have the opportunity to speak to staff within the department and observe some lessons within your chosen subject. You will also have the opportunity to speak to someone at the school about the SCITT programme and the support available. If you would like to book a school experience day please use the DfE website or email so that we can arrange this for you. School Experience days are available at all of our partner schools.

If you aren’t available for a full-day school experience, we are also able to offer you an online meeting with our one of our SCITT Managers to discuss training with Barr Beacon SCITT. If you would like to schedule one of the virtual meetings please email and one of the team will be in touch.
