School Experience Programme at Treviglas

If you are interested in gaining some classroom experience, perhaps with a view to embarking on a teacher training course, then follow the instructions below. We welcome visitors who want to do this and offer specific introductory dates every half- term within the English, Science, Maths, Humanities, Drama, ART, DT and PE faculties.  We are particularly keen to host ex-students who could form part of our alumni.

On day one we will arrange for you to observe teaching and pastoral work and give you the chance to talk to teachers about day-to-day school life.  You can come in for more than one day and this is arranged in advance or at the end of the first day.

You may be able to complete up to a maximum of 10 placement days on the School Experience Programme. This will need to be arranged between us and will require you to have a DBS check if you wish to come in for more than three days. This costs £54. You will need to bring in cash, or a cheque made payable to Treviglas Community College so we can issue you with a receipt. You will need to provide three forms of I.D, one of which must be a photo I.D, and personally come in and meet with Kyla McAlpin (PA to the SLT: k.mcalpin@treviglas.cornwall.sch.uk) who will complete an on-line application for you. It can take anything from 24 hours to a number of weeks, for your DBS application to be agreed so we advise you come in as soon as possible (ideally well in advance of your first day with us).

You can still visit for up to three days without a DBS check.

If you have any questions please feel free to email Kyla McAlpin or Lucy Pearn – College Learning Tutor at Treviglas.
