Insight into Teaching TT18 – Apply by Sunday 20 May

Blogged by Debra Popperwell on 16/05/2018.


Last week to apply – applications close on Sunday 20 May!

Insight into Teaching provides students with the opportunity to spend three days in a school with a full programme of lesson observation, perhaps a chance to try out some teaching and join in with activities, and a pre-placement seminar to get the most out of the placement.

Placements take place over 3 days in 9th week of Trinity term and are available in a range of subjects in secondary, primary and further education, in state-maintained and independent schools across Oxfordshire and elsewhere in the UK. This year the dates are Tuesday 19 to Thursday 21 June.

If you are thinking about a career in teaching then spending time in school is extremely important, not only to help you to decide whether teaching is for you, but also to enhance your teacher training application – whether you are considering a PGCE, School Direct, Teach First or another route into teaching. A participant on the programme last term said:

I took part in a departmental meeting at the end of my first day and was fascinated by how much teachers actually enjoyed teaching: they were talking with enthusiasm about how to improve classes and how happy they were when students enjoyed classes.’
