As an important support to the process of applying to train to teach we recommend that you gain real life experience of teaching in one of our partner schools either before, during or after your application.

A unique selling point of the Leeds Teaching School Alliance SCITT is that we are delighted to facilitate up to 2 weeks school experience in one of our schools to enhance and support your application to us. Whilst you are gaining this experience we will provide guidance to you regarding a successful application to Teacher Training. We have available dates on the School Experience Portal which is accessed via the DfE website.

To ensure a rapid response to arranging school experience with us it is a good idea as well as using the School Experience Portal to email us directly to If you contact us directly, bespoke arrangements can be made.
