Taster Sessions & Classroom Observations

Throughout the year, we aim to offer those interested in teacher training the opportunity to experience what it means to be a teacher.  These popular taster days will give you an insight into teaching in your chosen subject and school life. 

You will be able to see lessons in action and to ask experienced teachers and current trainees any questions that you may have.  We will also take you through the teacher training routes available in Gloucestershire, including our own. If you can’t see an event that meets your needs or if you wish to book a place on one of your days, please contact us at
