As part of the School Direct training programme, the Jurassic Coast Teaching Schools Alliance ensure all their trainees receive not only enriching professional study sessions in line with the @Exeter PGCE coursework but also a number of specialist additional sessions that are designed to further enhance the trainees learning.
One of these specialist additional sessions is an Employability Day which is led by senior members of Ofsted Outstanding secondary schools within the alliance.
The trainee arrives at the venue in interview attire and spends the day receiving training in a number of areas including application selection, lesson planning, preparation for interview, interview techniques and reflection.
The advice and training material provided during the Employability Day has been recorded as a CPD resource and elements from the day can be viewed below:
