One of the first ways of ‘trying out’ teaching, or gaining experience prior to applying / starting a training course, is to volunteer in a local school. This can include a mixture of observing lessons, assisting in a support role and speaking to staff about their role.

ASA has always been keen on supporting those who wish to get their ‘first step’ into teaching and has organised a range of short term and long term placements for those interested. If you would like to volunteer within the Academy, please use the contact forms to leave us your details, experience required and availability, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
