*During taster sessions, we will always endeavour to place you in lessons you are interested in teaching, however, please note that this cannot be guaranteed due to various factors such as safeguarding, timetables, school trips or exams. If you would like school experience in a certain department, please contact who will be able to assist with your enquiry.
