School Experience Days

School Experience Days

Teach Maidenhead will be running a number of School Experience Days throughout the year 2017-2018.  The school experience days that have been arranged are as follows:

Tuesday 5th December 2017 - At Furze Platt Senior School 

Monday 29th January 2018 - At Desborough College

Wednesday 14th March 2018 - At Altwood School

Wednesday 25th April 2018 - At Holyport College

Thursday 7th June 2018  - At Cox Green School


Further school experience days will be arranged during 2018 and the dates will be published here.


These initial school experience days will consist of the following:-

A presentation explaining Teach Maidenhead and the courses we are offering.

A tour of the school.

An opportunity to observe three lessons, some of which will relate to the subject you wish to train to teach, and complete prepared lesson observations forms.

The chance to re-convene as a group at the end of the day and share experiences.  You will also complete a feedback and evaluation form which will help determine whether you wish to return for further experience days if they can be supported by one of the Teach Maidenhead schools.

If you would like to sign up to one of the above School Experience Days please navigate to the DfE Website for an explanation of how to register your details and how to book onto a School Experience Day.  If you cannot book the school day and you are asked to call the School Experience Programme Team please do so as they may need to "triage" you before they can allow you to book a place.  All five schools will show as being within the 30 mile radius so you can book at the one with the earliest date as we all work together to provide teacher training.

 Please note that there are no opportunities for registering for School Experience for Drama or Economics on the Get Into Teaching website.  If you are interested in Drama please contact Mrs Gillian Drandridge on 01628 762261. There are no places available for Economics.
