With Teaching Internships, you’ll be able to experience the teaching profession, gain new skills and be paid for your time. So, if you’re an undergraduate on a STEM related degree and are interested in teaching secondary maths or physics, then the Teaching Internship programme could be for you. Internships take place during June and July 2020 and last four weeks.

Every Lesson Shapes a Life - Tuesday

Whose story will you inspire?

The programme takes place in schools across England. You’ll get the opportunity to experience a range of activities to help you get a feel for school life including:

  • classroom experience, which could include: assisting with lessons and providing subject support to pupils
  • shadowing experienced teachers and observing lessons, followed by a chance to jointly plan and deliver lessons
  • one-to-one guidance from outstanding classroom teachers
  • opportunities to network with qualified subject specialists

How to join

You’ll need to apply directly to participating schools and be an undergraduate in your penultimate year of a STEM related degree. In some circumstances, applications from final year STEM students may also be considered. To find out if you meet the eligibility criteria, check with participating schools before submitting your application.

To get the best chance of succeeding in your application, register with us for support from our teaching experts.

We are still recruiting for places starting in September 2020.

  • Prior experience in a school is not required prior to interview, but if you have been able to gain experience in schools, providers might find reports from those schools helpful. Equally, if you believe you have other transferrable experience, such as volunteering, you should share this.
  • There is no requirement for a face-to-face interview. These can take place electronically, ideally by Skype or similar. Documentation such as degree and GCSE certificates may be scanned and sent electronically.
  • If you are eligible for a bursary/scholarship/student finance, this is still available to you.
