Initial Teacher Experience

Teaching Is An Exciting And Rewarding Career

Here at St Margaret Ward Catholic Academy we give interested and potential teachers the opportunity to spend 5 days in our school to experience school life prior to their application for an Initial Teacher Training course.
They will be able to :
  • Observe high quality teaching and learning in lessons with experienced staff
  • Spend time with form tutors and in assemblies
  • Meet all school professionals
  • Learn more about the wider aspects of a Teacher’s role and extra  curricular involvement
  • Shadow individual students 
They will also have the opportunity to take part in a training session on pedagogy or curriculum.
Advice will be given about routes into teaching.
