Getting school experience

We offer regular taster days in both our primary and secondary schools for those who want to find out more about training to teach in Winchester. Our next Open Morning will be held in October/November 2024 at The Westgate School, Winchester. 

We are also able to offer longer periods of school experience for those who are committed to teaching as a career. In order to find out more about both of these options, please contact Mrs Corrie at or on 01962 854757, ext. 2168.  

If you are interested in gaining hands-on work within a school in a role that will directly support your future teaching career, we advise that you apply to become a Teaching Assistant or Cover Supervisor.  Job opportunities for these roles within Hampshire can be found at Education jobs Hampshire | Hampshire County Council (
