IN LIGHT OF COVID-19 WE ARE UNABLE TO HOLD ANY FACE TO FACE OPEN EVENTS OR ARRANGE LESSON OBSERVATIONS WITHIN GEORGE ABBOT SCHOOL.

In the meantime, we will be running interactive virtual events so we can introduce ourselves and our training programmes to you.

The sessions will be led by our Director of Initial Teacher Training and our Operational Lead (previously Head Teacher) and our experienced ITT recruitment & support staff.

  • Learn how our training programmes will work for you and support you during your training year.
  • Discover the skills and attributes ITT providers are looking for in successful applicants and get tips on making your personal statement stand out from the crowd.
  • Have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about teacher training or applying for a training placement.

We are running these sessions monthly but do feel free to get in touch in between webinars if you have any questions you would like us to help with.

In addition, we offer Teacher Training Taster Days.  UNFORTUNATELY THESE ARE CURRENTLY ON HOLD DUE TO THE PANDEMIC.

We give interested applicants the opportunity to spend a day at George Abbot School, Guildford. These are primarily aimed at Secondary applicants but are also open to Primary candidates who would like to gain some experience of a Secondary school.  It is a great way for you to find out more about our SCITT before making your application.  To register for a limited place, please visit Eventbrite:  https://teachertasterdays.eventbrite.co.uk
