Acquiring (work) experience during your study
All students acquire work experience during their study: this may be via a hands-on trainee placement or a research or other project in or outside the school. It is partly on the basis of what you have learnt from these experiences that you embark on your career as a teacher. Be aware of this: tackle all trainee placements and projects as professionally as possible. For example, you already start to build up your network right from the start of your study.
