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.
