Information Events



We are holding a information event for any graduate (or soon to be graduate) interested in becoming a Primary school teacher on Monday 10th December from 10:00am to 11:30am

The session will be led by our Operational Lead (previously a Primary School Head Teacher) and our experienced ITT recruitment & support staff.    

- Learn how the Teach Surrey 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 will be attending the Train to Teach information evening Tuesday 12th February 2019 - Silvermere Golf & Leisure, Cobham - 5pm to 8pm along with a number of other Surrey teacher training providers.  Do visit our stand to say hello and we will answer any questions you may have.     

Teacher Training Taster Days

For 2019 entry, we will be offering 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.

The days currently run as follows:

  • a talk on how a school work
  • two lesson observations which, where possible, will be in your chosen subject area
  • lunch with past and present trainees to really gain an understanding of how school-based teacher training would work for you
  • a presentation from our training team outlining what George Abbot SCITT can offer you during your training year as well as offer advice on submitting your application
  • a Q&A session to give the opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about George Abbot SCITT, teacher training or the UCAS application process.

PRIMARY applicants are very welcome to join us for our presentation and Q&A session.  Please contact kslatford@georgeabbot.surrey.sch.uk if you are interested in attending in this capacity.
