School Experience Programme

For those interested in teacher training, ETSA Southgate can offer you placement days through the School Experience Programme which will give you an insight into our aspirational, inclusive and diverse learning communities. A placement with us will provide you with valuable classroom experience.  Our Subject areas are well staffed with a mixture of experienced and new colleagues.  You will have the opportunity to observe teaching in your preferred subject and to talk to teachers about day to day life in a school.

If you are considering a career in teaching it is important that you are able to demonstrate your commitment and enthusiasm by gaining classroom experience prior to submitting an application via UCAS.  Completing a placement on the School Experience Programme will support future applications for Initial Teacher Training and, as a provider of School Direct, give you the opportunity to meet current trainee teachers.

  • Biology
