how to apply

Before you apply:
  • The placement needs to be right for you, so find out as much as you can about the Alton Cluster – the websites of the schools we work with is a good place to start, you can find a list here
  • Visit us – we’d love to meet you, contact any of the schools directly for a tour and a chat with the Headteacher or alternatively join us for one of our "School Experience Programme" days – this will give you an insight into what it’s actually like to be a teacher and maybe an opportunity to spend some time in a classroom
  • If you have any general enquiries about the programme, please contact Bushy Leaze on 01420 87675 (option2) or [email protected]

I’m ready to apply – what next?

The interview
Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed by a panel made up of senior staff from the Alton Cluster of schools and a representative from The University of Winchester.
Interviews may include:
  • A tour of the school
  • Small group or class teaching
  • A written task
  • A verbal presentation
  • A formal interview

I’ve been accepted! 
  • If we believe that you have the potential to be an outstanding teacher and that you share our ethos for providing exceptional education, you will be offered a place on our programme.  
  • If you have any questions, big or small, please do ask:  contact Chloe at Bushy Leaze: [email protected] or 01420 87675 (option 2).
