Get into teaching

Experience is one of the most important things in any application for a teacher training programme. It gives you the best opportunity to engage with students and to see what it is really like in the classroom.

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

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 day is not just about observations though, we have put together a full programme to ensure your get the most out of the day.

In addition to this, you will have the opportunity to talk to other teachers and current ITTs about the career in general and what training to teach actually entails.
