Get into teaching

Get into Teaching Days with Yorkshire Wolds Teacher Training allow you to gain a wealth of experience in the classroom by observing experienced and highly skilled teachers.

Although experience is not a barrier to being offered a place on one of our programmes, it does support your application. When attending one of our Get Into Teaching Days, you will be able to engage with students and to see what it is really like in the classroom and get some real school experience.

The purpose of these days is to give you some practical experience of life in the classroom and working with young people.

We don’t just want you to sit at the back of the classroom though! The benefit of being involved in these days is to allow you to reflect on the teaching practice that you observe and use this to better your own understanding of what the career entails.

The next Get into Teaching Days will be held on Monday 13 January 2020 at South Hunsley School and Hunsley Primary and on Thursday 16 January 2020 at Malet Lambert.
