    Contact schools and ask if you can simply volunteer in a classroom, most places need a spare pair of hands. Just explain your situation! What about the primary you use to go to? Why don't you contact them? There's quite a lot of info on how to prepare for teacher training and what to do beforehand in a short e-book on amazon called 'should i become a primary school teacher', might be worth a look, as its free.

    Hope this helps, you will just have to go out there and get contacting schools!

    Most universities ask for 2 weeks experience, so definitely try and get some more, it doesn't necessarily need to be in school, what about after school clubs or something like cubs?
