School Experience & Taster Days

Bluecoat Academy is registered with the DfE as part of the School Experience Programme (SEP)


Spending time in a classroom is the ideal way to strengthen your application for teacher training. School experience gives you the chance to see for yourself what it’s really like to be a teacher – and supports your application and interview.

What can you expect?

Throughout your placement, you’ll have the opportunity to observe teaching and to talk to teachers about day-to-day life in a school. You should get the chance to see a range of different lessons and age groups being taught.

How to sign up for a placement on the SEP

If you haven’t already, you’ll need to register with the Teaching Line before you can participate 0800 389 2500 or REGISTER HERE
