The School Experience Programme (SEP) gives prospective applicants for initial teacher training (ITT) the opportunity to spend one or more observation days in school to gain an insight into the role and responsibilities of a teacher.
The SEP targets high-quality graduates and undergraduates who are interested in teaching maths, chemistry, physics, languages, computing or design and technology. Eligible enquirers are offered an initial 1 day visit. Depending on eligibility and the availability of the host school, they are then offered up to a further 9 days at a time to suit the host school and participant. Schools are paid to host the visit and the costs of DBS checks are also paid where applicable.
Please ensure you read the SEP information for schools before you register your school’s interest for the SEP.
If you have any queries about the programme, or if you're from a school that wishes to register interest in SEP, please get in touch using the contact details below.
