Teaching Taster Days are an ideal opportunity for anyone considering a career in teaching to spend a day in one of our Star Schools. The day will involve a tour of the school, an observation of a lesson in the chosen subject area, a presentation on different routes into teaching and a question and answer session with a newly qualified teacher.
There will be opportunities during the course of the day to talk informally to staff and to ask any questions you may have.
