Register for school experience

Spending time in one of our schools can help you to find out if secondary school teaching is right for you. It will also strengthen your application for initial teacher training. Most of all, our schools are wonderful places to visit.

During your school experience you will have the opportunity to:

- observe experienced teachers in your subject area;
- meet current and/or former KEC trainees;
- seek advice about applying for initial teacher training. 

You should expect to be in school from approximately 08:30 until 16:00.

Owing to the government's decision to close schools in order to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are currently unable to offer school experience.

Instead, you would be most welcome to book a telephone appointment with Louise Leigh (Director of Initial Teacher Training) to discuss the KEC programme. To arrange a convenient time please email:

You can also click here to request a prospectus by post.

We continue to welcome applications for our initial teacher training programmes and have contingency plans to proceed with interviews via an online platform. 


The support from school staff has been wonderful.
