What is it all about? View the Internship Padlet here

The Internship Programme offers young people the opportunity to gain a deep experience of teaching.  You will spend three weeks in a secondary school working with students, supporting your department and have the opportunity to spend time in specialist units in school such as SEND and Engage.  You will be allocated a dedicated mentor who will guide you through the experience.

What will it look like?

You will have a handbook with tasks to complete each week. (This must be completed and handed in at the end to initiate your payment)
You will: 
-have a lesson timetable
-complete lesson observations
-attend department and full staff meetings
You may:
-work in small groups to support learners 
-work in student trials
-support teachers in lessons
-be involved in wider school activities such as Sports Days and trips
-create resources
-help to run pre-existing STEM clubs or help to set one up
-support Year 6/7 transition activities
-carry out some sample marking

Dates for 2022
Your internship will run for three weeks beginning Monday June 27th-July 15th*
*Variations to the three week block will be considered for extenuating circumstances on an individual basis.
