Portsmouth School Experience Programme – funding available for schools

At the beginning of September we will be launching the first of our campaigns to encourage people to consider teaching in Portsmouth. The campaign will include the invitation to prospective teachers to register to gain school experience in a Portsmouth school.
We are therefore looking for host schools to take prospective teachers over the course of the 2019/20 school year, probably over 2-3 days, and allow them to:
– Sit in on a variety of lessons, working with pupils under the guidance of the teacher;
– Receive advice from the Head or CPD lead on routes into teaching;
– Talk to a newly or recently qualified teacher in the school about their experience.
We hope to be able to secure some funding from the Portsmouth Education Elementary Fund to contribute to the administrative costs to schools of providing quality school experiences which could be up to £1500 for a school (or group of schools) able to take up to 10 prospective teachers over the course of the year. www.teachportsmouth.co.uk
