School placements

We will usually arrange your school placement for you.

If you have a prior connection with a local school or college, perhaps as an ex-pupil or through a previous placement, it may be possible for you to arrange your own. In this situation, you must email before contacting them yourself.

Context for 2022-23 academic year

After the impact of the pandemic and subsequent restrictions to school visitors, we are working with our local schools to reintroduce student tutoring placements ‘in schools’ for the 2022-23 academic year.  In what will be a transitional time for many schools, we cannot guarantee high numbers of school placements, but hope to offer a mixture of opportunities through our placements and those with Action Tutoring. We will provide further information about this to students who have registered for Career Development Modules.

Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check

You must apply for an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check (formerly CRB check) via the Careers Service. Information on how and when to apply will be sent to you after you register on the module.
