If you are exploring teaching or planning your PGCE application, you should have experience in a school classroom of at least 2 weeks.

The UoW Associates in Schools scheme gives you the invaluable experience of working in a school classroom, where you will be supporting teachers in a school or college.

The scheme consists of a 15-day placement (100 hours), working as a volunteer teaching assistant within your specialist subject area or agegroup.

While the scheme provides an opportunity to test the waters of a possible career, it’s also a chance to be a role model for young people and raise their aspirations towards higher education.

You would complete the placement over 1-2 days per week, starting in Semester 1.
