Taster Days

Are you wondering whether secondary teaching is the career for you? 

Come along to a Taster Day to see if secondary teaching is for you! 

Taster Days are organised by individual teacher training providers in Wales throughout the year and are normally free of charge.  While programmes will vary these are some of the things you will get to experience:

  • An opportunity to observe lessons in a local secondary school
  • Gain an understanding of the work of a teacher
  • Advice on your route into teaching
  • A guide to application and interview

A free Secondary Teaching Taster Day is available at the University of South Wales, contact david.tennant@southwales.ac.uk for further information.


Students and graduates in Wales can apply for a GO Wales Work Taster which is a period of unpaid work experience in any public or private sector organisation.  You can request a Taster in a school to gain classroom experience.  More information and advice is available from your place of study.   Click here for a list of contacts.
