Teaching Internships

If you’re a good listener and would like to make a real difference to the lives of young people, we’d like to show you what it’s like to be a teacher of Maths or Physics in a secondary school.

More information on DFE website

We are looking for second year undergraduates on Maths, Physics or Engineering degree courses who could come to us for 4 weeks in the summer.

You would receive £1,200 (£300 a week)
  • We can pay you to spend a month with us, learning all about it.
  • Spend time in shadowing teaching staff
  • Guided support from an experienced mentor
  • Get an introduction to what teacher training would involve including using data to inform your teaching
  • Gain work experience and a reference from a professional organisation
  • See what one year teacher training options would be available when you graduate; how to apply and how you can fund it with bursaries or even a salary while you train.

This internship programme is coordinated by the West London Teaching School Alliance (WLTSA) for schools in West London and by New River Teaching School Alliance (NRTSA) for schools in North London. We both deliver outstanding university accredited postgraduate teacher training courses in a partnership of schools - with a view to you potentially working there once you qualify.

Our short internship programmes aim to provide a really useful experience of what its like to work in a school, to prime potential applicants for our courses that would start after you graduate (in September every year).

A simple online application form will be uploaded to this page later this month.  You will be able to apply for an internship at a specific school (choosing from the list below to run in June/July 2019).

You can learn about more about each of the West London schools by clicking the sub-tab (in the menu above) to our secondary school summary desciptions.  This lists all West London Teaching School Alliance schools, so you need to look for the ones listed below who are offering intern places. We also include a sub-tab to our map of West London partner schools, so you can see exactly where they are (blue dots).
