Swanshurst is committed to supporting new entrants to the teaching profession. As part of this process we offer the opportunity, for people considering teaching as a career, to gain experience of schools and observe teachers in the classroom prior to commencing an ITE programme.
Most opportunities to observe will be based around 2 days, subject to departmental commitments and volume of demand. These opportunities are available between the following dates throughout the school calendar:
Sometimes it is possible to spend longer in school but this only applies to those holding a current Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (formally CRB) certificate. We are not able to apply for this on your behalf. Please note, also, that we are unable to provide opportunities for full placements with providers with whom we do not already work.
If you like to be considered for one of these placements please complete the application form below.
