Whilst it is not essential to undertake school experience in order to apply, this is something we strongly recommend. Undertaking some experience in the school environment enriches your application and provides vital content for your form. It is naturally also of course a key way for you to be able to confirm that training to teach is definitely the right decision for you!
Many trainees opt to volunteer prior to application, if they have not been working in an educational based setting. If you are intending to apply and train to teach with the TTSA, we can assist in arranging school experience – please complete our register for support form and a member of the team will be in touch.
