We are delighted to be able to offer Taster Days at some of our partnership schools. Taster Days are a great way of getting some school experience and will help you establish if teaching is the right career for you; attendance at a Taster Day will also assist you with writing your personal statement for your Initial Teacher Training application and help prepare you for interview, where we will ask you to teach a lesson. Please note that demand for Taster Days is high and whilst we will do our best to accommodate your request, numbers are limited. If you are interested in attending one of our Taster Days, please follow the link to one of the dates below and complete a booking request form. Taster Days will usually run from around 8.30 to 13.00 but times will vary by school, depending on the school timetable. We will confirm by email if you have a place and we will also confirm actual times, parking arrangements, dress code etc.
PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO DEMAND, WE CAN ONLY OFFER ONE TASTER DAY PER PERSON

Teach SouthEast have also uploaded some resources, narrated presentations and videos that may assist you in gaining valuable information about Teach SouthEast, the application process and what it's like to train to teach with Teach SouthEast.
