Teaching experience scheme for Kent students – information event 16 May

The Partnership Development Office, in conjunction with the University’s partner secondary schools, would like to introduce you to an exciting teaching experience scheme that we are piloting from September 2017, exclusively for Kent students.

The Partner Schools’ Teaching Experience Scheme has been designed to allow Kent students, who have an interest in entering the teaching profession, a unique insight into teaching, by offering training and paid work opportunities in the classroom.

Stage 1

Students in their penultimate year of study can access paid School Experience Placements, supporting pupils in the classroom in one of the University’s partner secondary schools.

Stage 2

Students in their final year of study can apply to take on a Direct-Entry Teaching Internship, receiving training and paid work delivering pre-written teaching materials to pupils in our partner schools.  If suitable trainee teacher vacancies arise within our partner schools during this year, this placement could lead to an offer of a salaried direct-entry teacher training position at the school upon graduation.

The scheme offers extensive benefits, including first-hand classroom experience, training and paid work opportunities.  For further information please visit the following link: https://www.kent.ac.uk/ambassadors/files/pstes-information-booklet.pdf
