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.

STRUCTURE OF THE PROGRAMME

  • Welcome and introduction to the school by a member of the Senior Leadership Team
  • A presentation outlining available School Direct options, offering advice and guidance
  • A tour of the school with students, visiting a number of lessons
  • A timetable of lessons to observe and structured lesson observation forms to support you in your initial observations
  • Opportunity to discuss your observations with a member of the Senior Leadership Team
  • Opportunity to meet current School Direct training teachers
