Attend a Tudor Grange SCITT Secondary Taste of Teaching Day!

Ideal for candidates that are looking to find out more about teaching and if a career in teaching is right for them, Taste of Teaching Days are focused around what the day to day life of a teacher is and what a career in teaching is really like. Senior Leadership from Tudor Grange will run small workshops exploring the reality of teaching and the different development pathways available within schools and the education system. Aspects of teaching that prospective candidates may not have considered before are also examined. Lesson observations are also factored into the day and attendees will gain first-hand experience observing outstanding teachers teach providing opportunities to interact with staff and students.

Attendees will leave the day having a much deeper and broader understanding of the teaching profession and will be able to make more accurate judgements surrounding if teaching is something they want to pursue.
