London is one of the world's most fascinating and culturally active cities. It is a booming center of business, education, culture, law, fashion, and entertainment. From Piccadilly Circus to Kensington Gardens, there are many things to see and do in London, all of which are reachable by the tube (subway). Student teachers will typically be placed in Zones 1 and 2, which are located in the heart of the city and are close to many world famous sites, like the London Tower, the London Eye, and Buckingham Palace.
Students will be supervised by a staff member from Anglo Educational Services as well as an on-site practicing teacher. The staff member will be responsible for orienting the students to the culture of British schools, supervising their placement, and grading their work. Students may do either student teaching placement abroad, pending approval from the SUNY Oswego Education Department. Student placements will vary depending on the age range and subject area being sought.
Requirements for England
For US citizens wanting to teach in England, a visa is required. The visa application can be lengthy and students should have their passport prior to the application deadline. Information and applications will be provided to you by the program coordinator at the Oswego OIEP.
Students must submit an overseas student teaching application, police check, and current resume, including any pertinent teaching experience completed to date, and other standard application materials. Students are also encouraged to provide the Program Coordinator with as much "raw data" as possible, i.e.- special skills, qualifications, interests, etc.
All of the above will help facilitate the placement process in England and ensure the best fit for each student's cross-cultural experience.
Note: Teaching placements in England are made based on availability of sites. Every effort is made to secure placements for Oswego student teachers as far in advance as possible, however in many cases placements are not finalized until just prior to departure to England. Contact the program coordinator for more information.
Housing and Meals
Students will live in program provided apartments with other program participants and other American university students. Meals are not provided, but apartments will have kitchens available for use.
