Voluntary Work Experience
We would encourage anyone interested in pursuing a career working with children to first find out exactly what it is like! We believe that it is in the long term interest of our profession and our children's futures to support anyone interested in taking up this rewarding career. It is far better to find out sooner rather than later, if you have the prerequisite skills, knowledge and understanding to improve outcomes for our children. We aim to accommodate potential teachers and learning support assistants in providing a program of voluntary work experience. This gives and opportunity to work alongside our staff and pupils and provides great insight into what the role involves. While you gain the experience, we hopefully benefit out staff and pupils will benefit from the support and enthusiasm.
While we aim to provide opportunities for all potential requests, these are subject to availability and after appropriate checks have been made about suitably to work with children.
