School Experience

Undertaking relevant school experience can be an important part of you deciding whether to train to teach. Whilst evidence of school experience is not a decisive factor in our selection process we are always happy to facilitate school experience visits.

UK NARIC – for those with overseas qualifications

We ask that anyone applying to Teach Kent &  Sussex who holds overseas qualifications contacts NARIC for a statement of comparability. This should be done in advance of interview and must be done before an offer can be made. NARIC will confirm that the level of the qualification studied is comparable to the public examinations taken at GCSE level and studies at UK undergraduate degree level.

Please note that there is a charge per standard application, but multiple qualifications can be made on one application and therefore most applicants need only apply once.
