School experience programme
Gaining classroom experience before starting your Initial Teacher Training (ITT) e.g. School Direct can help you be sure that a career in teaching is right for you. It can also support your application for ITT.
The School Experience Programme (SEP) offers classroom experience in a secondary school. The duration is flexible (1 to 10 days); this will be agreed between you and your host school. For further information about this please visit http://www.education.gov.uk/get-into-teaching/school-experience/sep.
