PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO GOVERNMENT ADVICE IN RELATION TO COVID-19, WE CANNOT FACILITATE ANY SEP UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
The Humber Teaching School can offer experience in a range of learning environments where you can observe highly skilled teachers and gain a wealth of experience of real classroom life. The benefit of being involved in this practical approach is to allow you to reflect on the teaching practice observed and better your own understanding of what being a teacher really entails. We encourage you to be active in the lessons you observe and not just sit at the back of the classroom.
When we interview candidates for our School Direct programmes, we are looking for people who have shown a passion for their subject, a passion for working with young people and an ability to be reflective and consider what they have seen and done. The School Experience programme gives you the opportunity to reflect on the practice you have seen, better preparing you for the application process to a teaching training programme or interview.

What does a SEP include?
A 'typical' placement may involve the following:
- Focussed observations of the learning environment and the quality of teaching, so you can see how students make good and outstanding progress.
- Reflection opportunities on behaviour management and how different strategies are used by experienced teachers to ensure excellent behaviour for effective learning.
- Experience of the process of long, medium and short term planning and how an accurate assessment process is intrinsic to effective teaching.
By the time your placement comes to an end we want you to have experienced the exciting world of teaching in the best possible setting.
