School Experience Programme

Gaining experience within a school environment is an important first step on your pathway to teaching. At EborHope Teaching School Alliance we offer a School Experience Programme (SEP) which aims to give you a valuable opportunity to experience what it is like to teach your own class and engage with pupils of varying ages. You have the chance to observe a lesson in your chosen subject, engage with pupils and teachers and speak with leading practitioners about our outstanding School Direct programme which we are proud to deliver in partnership with York St John University.

We aim to deliver a tailored school experience to meet your needs. We keep the groups of attendees fairly small to allow for your individual questions and allow us to offer tailored advice on your next steps into teaching, including the application process through UCAS, advice on personal statements, and what will be expected of you during the interview process.


For 2020-2021 we are recruiting in the following subjects:

Biology                   Chemistry              Physics               Drama

English                   Geography             History               Mathematics

Music                      Religious Education                         PE

PE with EBacc       Modern Foreign Languages


All experience days are at a range of Hope Learning Trust schools and further days within our alliance schools may be possible.  During Spring 2021 EborHope TSA will deliver school experience virtually, due to Covid-19, however we are able to offer an interactive, online opportunity with Dr Brian Rock, Initial Teacher Training Lead at EborHope Teaching Schools Alliance.

  • Tuesday 5th January 2021            16:30 to 18:00       all subjects

I was very impressed with all the Teachers that I met on the day and your pupils were absolutely lovely. One day I would love to work for a school that fosters such professional staff and instills great values in their students.
