Thinking of a career in teaching? Don’t miss out on this chance for work experience via the University of Westminster Associates in Schools (UWAS) Scheme.

This is an exciting opportunity to gain valuable work experience in a school classroom, where you will be supporting the teacher. The scheme consists of a 15-day placement in a secondary school. The placement can be completed in weekly blocks or in instalments (eg one day per week), while continuing your studies.

This is a great chance to find out whether teaching is the career for you. A placement can also boost your transferable skills like teamwork, oral communication, initiative, motivation, flexibility and adaptability – skills which employers are looking for.

The experience may also equip you for part-time work as a teaching assistant or cover supervisor.

The deadline for applications is 28 June 2013.
