Get Experience

Get Experience

Although school experience is not an entry requirement we believe that it is important for all applicants to have a good understanding of the life of teacher. We encourage all applicants to spend some time in school prior to the application process which we are happy to help you organise.

Experience Visit

We are happy to arrange up to three days for you in one of academies to help you decide if teaching is the career for you. During the visit you be assigned a host teacher who will be able to answer any questions you have about the teaching profession.

Please contact us for more information: schooldirect@deltatrust.org.uk

Open Mornings

Hosted by one of our outstanding primary or secondary academies these days offer an opportunity for prospective trainee’s to gain application advice from a member of the Delta School Direct team, discuss the training programme and have opportunity to observe classroom practice.

Please see the events section for more information.

Being a trainee for a day

We can offer potential applicants the chance to shadow one of our current trainee teachers for a day to experience what a typical day is like and find out more about life as a trainee. Please contact us for more information.

Application Workshops

If you are ready to apply but would like a little guidance, come along to one of our application workshops.
