Pennine Lancashire SCITT

School Experience

To apply for a traineeship with the Pennine Lancashire SCITT, we expect a candidate to have a minimum 5 days recent and relevant experience in a secondary school (preferably within the Pennine Lancashire Partnership). At interview, we would look to see evidence of what has been learned from this experience.

At different points through the year we offer ‘School Experience Days’ when prospective candidates can come in to school, find out more about the application process and gain relevant school experience through classroom observation. There is usually a small charge for attending these days.

Schools in our partnership also support the School Experience Programme (SEP). It is through this route that we would expect most candidates to apply to us for school experience. It is straightforward to register and is free of charge for the candidate in shortage subjects.
