I'm starting in Sept as a Learning Support Assistant, with the intention of one day going on to do my PGCE to teach art at secondary. I've only done work experience in schools up until now, and need to buy suitable clothes for working in a school both for my LSA role and eventually a teaching position. What is generally considered suitable (and practical) attire for male staff in schools? Suitable trousers? Chinos? Suit trousers only? Colour restrictions? Shirts? Long/Short Shelves? Colour restrictions? Jackets/Suits? What is expected? Colour? Type of Jacket/Suit? How well does it need to match other clothing? Do I need a full suit, just a jacket, or both? Jumpers? What is considered suitably casual/smart? Texture?, Colour?, Fit? Shoes? Presumably smart office shoes, what is recommended? Tie? I expect to wear a tie, suggestions? Other things to note; I'm only just out of university and I'm lucky enough to look it, also I'm on a tight budget. Any help would be appreciated.
