Are you thinking of becoming a teacher? Want to get a taste of what it’s like? Then you are invited to Silverdale School as part of The Get School Experience programme on Friday 24 February 2023 where you will get the chance to experience working within a real school environment and see what it’s like to be a teacher.

The knowledge that you will gain on our Get School Experience programme is invaluable.

The programme provides the perfect opportunity for anyone who is thinking of becoming a teacher to get first-hand knowledge and experience so that you can be sure you are making an informed decision about your future in teaching.

The programme covers a range of activities where you will spend the day at Silverdale School in Sheffield. You will get the chance to observe lessons in a specific subject that you are interested in teaching, see how teachers manage a classroom, speak to tutors and interact with pupils and learn more about teacher training including the application and interview process.

Jennifer Mann, Initial Teacher Training School Direct Secondary Course Leader at Sheffield Teacher Training Alliance (STTA) said: “This a fantastic opportunity for anyone thinking about a career in teaching. The knowledge that you will gain on our Get School Experience programme is invaluable. You will get the chance to experience directly what it means to be a teacher and speak to current teachers to get their advice and ask questions.

“At STTA we are so passionate about this incredibly rewarding career and the Get School Experience programme supports our goal to strive to develop, support and celebrate excellent trainee teachers who are well prepared for the teaching profession.”

Don’t worry if you are unable to attend the session in February, another session is also taking place on Monday 13 March 2023. Details on how to book on to these sessions will be published soon.
