CAN I COME TO A TASTER SESSION BEFORE I APPLY?
Our Alliance schools are available for you to visit, but we, also, offer a number of Taster Days, so that you can take a look before you apply.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
This half day session will allow you to gain experience in a school prior to applying for a School Direct placement. You will be given the opportunity to observe lessons and to attend a number of sessions linked to teaching and School Direct routes.
