Eggar's has a strong history of supporting Initial Teacher Training (ITT) placements. We work in partnership with a range of ITT providers on the SCITT (School Centred) and PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) routes including; i2i Teaching Partnership, the Hampshire SCITT Partnership and the Universities of Chichester, Reading, Portsmouth and Southampton to train new teachers in a range of subjects.
The Eggar’s School Experience Programme
School experience is a vital part of choosing whether a career in education is for you and classroom experience can strengthen your applications, as well as help prepare you for future interviews.
Our School Experience Programme is available for those expressing an interest in the teaching profession, whether you are preparing for ITT applications, considering a career change or considering other educational careers such as LSA’s and Cover Supervisors.
During a School Experience Day, individuals are given the opportunity to:
- Talk to staff and students about daily school life.
- Observe teaching & pastoral work.
- Experience a range of ages and subject areas.
- Gain invaluable insight and experience of working in a school environment.
We offer School Experience days across the academic year. To book an Eggar’s School Experience Day, please visit the Department for Education’s ‘Get School Experience’ website and submit a request.
Get Into Teaching
For specific information on entering the teaching profession and different routes or bursaries available, please use the links on the right hand menu or contact us directly. We also host Get Into Teaching events in partnership with our ITT providers; dates for our next event can be found in our calendar.
If you are planning for a teaching career, a valuable stepping stone into the profession can be to take on a Cover Supervisor or Learning Support Assistant for a year or more to develop your understanding and confidence in a secondary school setting. This can be an invaluable experience, and through our links with ITT providers can offer a supported process to get to a teaching career. If you feel this is a preferred route please visit our vacancies section of the website to see current positions available.
