School Experience Programme (SEP)

This is being updated for 2017

Kick off day – 9th June 2016 – Harrogate.

A programme to support those interested in training to teach at Primary and Early Years level.  This begins with Kick-off day where you will get to speak to people leading the teacher training, current SCITT trainees and headteachers who interview on the panel and hear about why you should get into teaching.  You will be able to see teaching in practice and you will be given support in your application and be taken through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks to start clearance processes.  After clearance is through you will be able to arrange further experience days with a local partnership school

At a few points I felt like it was too much as the teaching practice ramped up, but my Link Tutor and SBT were amazing and supported me through those times. It has been very hard work, but worthwhile and I am so excited about being in charge of my new class in September.
