School Experience Programme (SEP)

Getting school experience


Getting some classroom experience can help you to decide whether teaching is right for you - it could also strengthen your application.

Get a taste of school life with the School Experience Programme (SEP)

During your placement you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • talk to teachers about day-to-day school life
  • observe teaching and pastoral work
  • watch a range of lessons and age groups being taught

All of this will give you valuable insight and a great focus point for your application and interviews.


SEP will allow you to book a day’s worth of experience; any further days needed should be negotiated with the school once at your placement or you could book further days once each placement has been completed. As part of your placement, a Disclosure and Barring Service check may be required – this will be organised by the school.

How to take part
Once you’ve registered with Get Into Teaching, you’ll be able to book school experience online through their School Experience Programme. 

If you’ve already registered, log in to your checklist to book school experience through their online portal.
