NET Staff College has been successful with its application to deliver the Teaching Internships Programme June/July 2023. The aim of the programme is to enable undergraduates studying for a degree in STEM-related subjects the opportunity to experience teaching maths, chemistry, physics, computing and modern foreign languages, before they commit to it as a career. This programme is part of the Get into Teaching service, supporting prospective teachers through their journey into the profession. The programme is open across England to potential teachers in maths, chemistry, physics, computing and modern foreign languages.
It is an exciting opportunity for undergraduates, in any year of their degree, to experience time in an academy. These students may not have considered the teaching route; however, this programme gives them an opportunity to gain a greater insight and experience first-hand academy life. Interns will be offered a structure of activities to gain a deep experience of teaching, with access to one-to-one mentors and various opportunities to network with qualified subject specialists. The programme will also include measures to encourage and support interns to apply for teacher training.
As previously stated, this programme is only for specific subject areas within a secondary setting. It is a three-week placement that could be across more than one academy, depending on geographical location. In addition, the opportunity to spend two days in a primary academy will also be included. Please note interns will receive a payment of £900 (£300 per week).
