School Experience

School Experience Programme

The Hollins is a registered member of the School Experience Programme (SEP) with the Teaching Agency.

This programme offers a school placement to future teachers who are applying for initial teacher training. The programme gives you first-hand experience of life at The Hollins; you will have the opportunity to observe teaching and learning, our pastoral provision, and be part of day to day life in our school.  The programme will benefit you to:

  • gain an insight into teaching and see if this is the career for you
  • help prepare for an ITT interview by observing high-quality lessons
  • allow you to gain 10 days experience you need after securing an ITT training offer

To book a place on the school experience day, you will need to register at the SEP programme. Please follow this link:

School Experience Testimonials

“Thanks so much for having me at The Hollins.

The opportunity of visiting the school, observing some lessons and talking to such a great group of teachers was extremely valuable and enlightening for me.

I will be looking to go through ITT and start a career in teaching in the near future. It’s certainly an exciting path ahead.”
