School Immersion Programme

13 April 2017

ASCL is working with the DfE to promote and develop the School Immersion Programme. Collaborating with schools throughout England and Wales, this is an established initiative aimed at providing DfE staff with first-hand experience of school life and a greater insight into the wider impact of DfE policies to help shape future education strategy.

Participants undertake a three-day placement within a school or college to gain a deeper understanding of how the organisation operates, and the issues faced by headteachers and teaching staff.

This is an opportunity to showcase the innovative practice and expertise in schools and colleges across the country. School and college staff can also undertake reciprocal visits by arrangement with the DfE to better understand the work of the department.

If you would like to volunteer your school or college to take part in the programme or if you would like further information, please complete an expression of interest form.

Thank you to those of you who have already signed up for the programme.  

If you have already hosted a visit from the DfE on this programme, it is now possible to provide your feedback online. This is invaluable for developing the programme for future participants and ensuring schools, colleges and the DfE have a useful and productive experience.
