DfE would like Teaching Schools to participate in a week that aims to draw attention to the School Experience Programme. The Programme offers lots of benefits to schools as it brings prospective teachers through their doors and can play a key role in teacher recruitment. Candidates value the opportunity to experience school life from a teacher’s perspective and the school experience can be pivotal in their decision to proceed to apply for a teaching course.

Our first ‘Spotlight on SEP week’ will be w/c 23 April. Candidates will be contacted directly by the Department’s contact centre to raise awareness, and we will also promote the event through social media and networking groups in the run up and over the course of the week.

Teaching Schools are advised to register on the portal by Tuesday 3 April – as this is when DfE will begin to promote the Week to candidates. The portal can be accessed by following this link and you can create your school’s account by contacting the SEP team on the details provided on this webpage.

If you have any comments or queries please contact NCTL.SEP@education.gov.uk
